Description

Behold! Marcia Williams retells the exciting adventures of Adam and Eve, Noah, Moses, David and Goliath, and many more Old Testament characters in her compelling comic-strip style.

In the beginning there was only God . . . and then He started creating! The last and most troublesome of all God’s creations were men and women — and, as these wondrous tales reveal, God was forever having to give them a helping hand. Only the inimitable Marcia Williams, with her energetic narratives, voluminous illustrations, and gently humorous details, could make these Old Testament tales so vibrantly accessible to young readers. Certain to spark new interest in the original stories, GOD AND HIS CREATIONS is a heavenly creation indeed.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE! Of this book, she says, "Working on the Old Testament has been a joy. The tales are so rich, it is always possible to find something new within them. Yet, at the same time, they have all the comfort of the familiar." She lives in London.
