Purim in Pictures and Words retells the extraordinary story of the reversal of fortune and the miraculous survival of Jews of Persia in the days of Xerxes I, the emperor who is also known as King Achashverosh.
The story begins with King Achashverosh’s grandiose party and ends with the appointment of Mordechai-the-Righteous as the Persian king’s top minister. The complicated story involves a beauty contest, servants conspiring to kill the king, and an evil plot by an evil man to eliminate the Jewish people.
This informative, interactive book, which is based on the text of Megillat Esther (the Scroll of Esther), also includes an overview of the customs and traditions associated with the holiday of Purim.
