Peter Spier's Little Bible Storybooks
retold by Peter Seymour
pictures by Peter Spier ~ Doubleday, 1983
Since I'm not overly religious but still love me some Peter Spier, I thought it the perfect season to trot out this miniature medley of awesome. You know how I love wee little boxed sets, and this one is no exception. Peter's detailed drawings work perfectly here in a trio of tiny paperback, accordion-style books that have a delicate diorama feature in the back.
Retelling three of the most famous bible stories (Jonah, The Creation and Noah), I chose to photograph only the ark here as that's one of my animal-loving son's favorite stories, and we're particularly fond of Spier's full-length version. Though I will say, the diorama of Jonah getting gulped by the whale is pretty outstanding.
You'll just have to wait and see that one for yourself. Have a great one.
