Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Banks is best known for The Indian in the Cupboard and its sequels. Choosing an accomplished author for this novel based on the movie results in an immensely readable tale rather than the usual stilted fare produced as a movie tie-in. Although the book and movie both claim Exodus as the original source, they have made alterations to increase the tension between the main characters. In this version, Moses is brought to the palace and adopted by pharoah's wife, rather than by his daughter. Thus, Moses grows up as a brother to Ramses, who will later resist his requests to release the Hebrew slaves. In usual Hollywood fashion, a romantic interest is planted; Moses' future wife Tzipporah is a beautiful, strong-willed Bedouin girl. The liberties taken with the narrative do not detract from the biblical themes presented.

    This Book is THE BEST!!!

    I read this book, (twice), it really is very moving, (i actually cried in some parts) It shows the relationship Moses had to his family and his feelings. It also shows him more 'human' than 'Superior Holy One' I highly recomend you read this. Its an absolutely wonderful
