Tower of Babel

Foreword Review — Mar / Apr 2010

A retelling of this ancient tale, in which the people of the Valley of Shinar decide to build a tall tower to heaven. When they reach the 100th floor, they congratulate themselves: “How close we are to heaven…We will rule the earth and the sky!” Then a terrific lightning storm changes everything. Gadot’s modern, humorous touch is enhanced by Rebora’s light-hearted illustrations.
