Day after day, the young slave girl works for her master, until, suddenly, the world begins to change. The river turns to blood; herds of animals fall ill; locusts devour the year's crops.

One by one, ten plagues bring the pharaoh's kingdom to its knees. and then the girls and her family must flee, and follow Moses through sifting sand and parting seas to freedom.

In this poetic, accessible depiction of the Passover story, young readers and listeners will experience the events of the Exodus from Egypt from the point of view of a Jewish child.
