Paradiseshowcases 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.
