An elegantly illustrated collection of ten favourite Bible stories with an interesting twist. Margaret McAllister imaginatively retells these tales from the point of view of the women involved: Noah's wife, Miriam, Ruth, Mary mother of Jesus, Pilate's wife, Mary Magdalene are among some of the women who put their side of the story forward. A stylish compilation of Bible stories with a difference, this is a perfect gift for girls and boys alike.

Margaret McAllister is the author of over forty books for children, from funny things for under fives to teen fiction and everything in between – animals, history, funny, scary. For Lion she has written vivid re-tellings of Bible stories and tales of the saints, and her newest book, The Good Thing About Bad Days is to help young readers through the tough times that jump out and bite us.

Margaret lives in beautiful Northumberland with her husband, a retired Methodist minister. They have lived in five different places in the North-East and Yorkshire while bringing up three children who have turned out surprisingly well. She loves books, theatre, animals, walks in the countryside, welcoming visitors to Hexham Abbey and meeting up with friends. Margaret is a collector of grandchildren (including a grandspaniel.) Her long ago spaniel, Daniel, will welcome you to her website http://www.margaretmcallister.co.uk/
