Cover of Prince of Egypt by Jane Yolen

Prince of Egypt

I was asked to write the “Classic Storybook” version of the Spielberg “Prince of Egypt” movie. As I had been a religion minor in college and have done a number of books with folkloric and religious themes, I was interested. It turned out to be an interesting and sometimes frustrating book making project. My name is not on the front cover or spine but it is on the back cover and title page. The book was translated into at least fifteen different languages.

Available Dutton hardcover.
