So begins Elie Wiesel's harmonious retelling of twenty mysterious and wonderfully compelling stories about King Solomon--rarely heard tales that span the revered ruler's life, from the time he took the throne at age twelve, to the building of the Temple in Jerusalem, to the disintegration of the kingdom upon his death. Rich, rewarding, gracefully told, this keepsake book is illustrated by Mark Podwal, whose fluid and symbolic paintings grace every spread.
