Description

Kings and queens can be kind or cruel, greedy or generous, wise or foolish. Some of the best stories in the Bible are about ancient rulers who became famous for their deeds. From King Solomon’s wisdom to Queen Esther’s bravery, Mary Hoffman skillfully retells seven biblical stories, brought to life by Christina Balit’s vibrant art.  Kids love stories about royalty, and here are some of the most famous kings and queens, together in one gorgeously illustrated collection.
