Children's Literature
Here is an old story beautifully told, and the magnificent illustrations in this book make it truly lovely. The Jews who lived in Persia in Esther's time were almost fully assimilated with their neighbors. But they practiced their own religion, and that would have been their downfall if Esther had not been queen. Esther, chosen (in a beauty contest) as King Ahasueros' queen, was clever as well as beautiful. The evil prime minister, Haman, would have killed all the Jews, but Esther's uncle Mordechai found out about his plans. When Esther told the king that she, too, would have to die, he had Haman hanged. This is a Jewish story, but the Jews of Persia are not lily-white; they are as diverse as their neighbors-very refreshing!
