Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Because this adapter has taken excerpts from the Revised English Bible for her picture book, the language is less formal than that of the King James text used by Jane Ray in her version (Dutton, 1990). Brent uses shorter Biblical segments than the sections of the Revised Standard Version that Pauline Baynes employed (Holt, 1988). However, while the essential elements of the story are here, what will capture readers' attention is Brent's artistic technique. Her striking gilded illustrations are reminiscent of medieval illuminated manuscripts. Their intricate patterns and jeweled tones create a suitable accompaniment to the grace and grandeur of the words from Genesis. Each double-page spread boasts both a full-page painting and a smaller illustration of an animal pair. Libraries will want to squeeze this new retelling onto their Bible-story shelves. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN

From Kirkus Reviews

The title page of this beautifully illustrated edition of the story of Noah (as it appears in the Revised English Bible) states that Brent has ``illuminated'' the text, a fair description of her meticulous, ornamental work. Using elaborate patterns and borders, decorative motifs based on fabrics, tiles, or plants, stylized humans, and fairly realistic beasts, she assembles decorative full-page illustrations and delicate vignettes to adorn the facing pages of text, all gilded in the medieval tradition. The result may hold more charm for adults than for children, who like a bit more action in their pictorial narration. Still, the sheer beauty of these illuminations is sure to draw readers of all ages. (Nonfiction. 3+) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
