Paradise showcases Fiona French's distinctive artwork that combines the flowing organic lines of Art Nouveau with the colorful luminous look of Louis Comfort Tiffany's stained glass. Twelve kaleidoscopic tableaux, accompanied by a straightforward, easy-to-understand narrative, portray the Old Testament story of creation ? seven momentous days in which God creates the world: light and dark, sky and earth, fishes, birds, animals and finally man and woman. French returns to perhaps the most compelling text of the many available ? the Authorized King James version of the Bible ? to bring the Book of Genesis in all of its timeless drama into glowing perspective for young readers.
