This scholarly but accessible book is an examination of Old Testament stories as depicted in children's literature. These stories, for instance Noah, Moses, Joseph, Jonah, and David, have been adapted by a great number of children's authors and illustrators in fascinating and inventive ways. The story of Noah and the Ark, to take one example, often has a strong ecological dimension as it may be a starting-off point for children to understand their relation to the animal kingdom and the environment.

As feminist biblical scholarship and feminist theory have come to influence children's writers, we likewise note the publication of stories for children that concentrate on Noah's wife and other women associated with him. Each of the major books of the biblical canon are likewise studied in this lively and jargon-free book, which shows how children are allowed to dream of themselves as heroes while their moral and ethical development are also aided.
