The story of Joseph and his coat of many colours is one of the oldest stories in the world. As a young man, Joseph, his father's favourite son, is hated by his brothers who sell him as a slave for twenty pieces of silver. The young man grows up and survives the prisons and slave markets of Ancient Egypt. He rises to fame, becomes a ruler, and then meets his brothers again. This ancient story is brought to life by Brian Wildsmith in this spectacular version, set amid the landscapes of vast deserts and the immense architecture of Ancient Egypt. The popular book is now being published in paperback.

Brian Wildsmith is one of the most venerable figures in children's illustration today and celebrates over forty years of publishing with OUP - a truly remarkable achievement.From Booklist:
Ages 5^-9. Most libraries probably own several versions of the popular biblical story about Joseph, but this one is well told and particularly handsome. Wildsmith's ink-and-watercolor artwork has never seemed more polished, his colorings more carefully shaded (especially where the blue of the desert sky meets the gold of the sand). He also uses the Egyptian setting of pharaoh's court to beautiful effect, making it come alive with pyramids and hieroglyphic-encrusted walls and spires climbing to the sky. The gilt edging of the pages also gives the book the glow of majesty. For any library needing (or wanting) just one more edition, this book makes a fine addition to religion shelves. Ilene Cooper
