Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

DePaola retells New Testament parables, many of which invite further discussion about their messages (some of the parables will require a bit of puzzling through for picture book readers). The palette of the illustrations has an intense, hand-mixed look; the pictures reveal clues about the stories' meanings. ``The Good Samaritan'' is included, as is ``The Mustard Seed,'' ``The Prodigal Son'' and other pieces from the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke, parables that dePaola makes into entertaining, thought-provoking material for young readers. A luminous collection. Ages 7-11. (October) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
