The beautiful young Esther has been chosen as queen by the king of Persia. Surrounded by servants, each day she wears gorgeous dresses and eats delicious foods in his luxurious court. Still, she remembers the promise made to her uncle when she was a child. She tells no one that she is Jewish. One day the prime minister, angry because Esther's uncle does not bow to him, arranges a decree ordering all Jews to be killed. Will Esther find the courage to stand up for her people, even if it means revealing her religion to the king?

Diane Wolkstein is an internationally-known folklorist. In Esther's Story, her rich combination of Biblical text and oral legend illuminates the origin of the feast of Purim. As this retelling of the Book of Esther unfolds, narrator Linda Stephens voice conveys the remarkable strength, beauty, and wisdom of a fabled queen.

    " This is a great picture book aimed at ages 4-8 that fleshes out the story of Esther. Good, confidence building story for young girls. Other good books for girls would be the Paper Bag Princess and The Rough Faced Girl. "

    " Told from the point of view of Esther herself - in the form of diary entries. I liked this unique perspective and the illustrations are very nice. This is a very long and detailed picture book and probably best suited for older children. "
