Joseph used to live on a farm in the land of Canaan with his dad, stepmothers, eleven brothers and lots and lots of cows! His jealous brothers sold him as a slave and now he lives in Egypt. Mrs Potiphar told lies about him, so Joseph now finds himself in prison, with only his imaginary cows to keep him company. Soon he’s joined by a butler and a baker who used to work for Pharaoh. The butler and the baker have strange dreams. Can Joseph work out what they mean?

‘Lively, fresh and innovative retellings, these fabulous tales of the young Joseph are an absolute delight.’
Alexa Tewkesbury, children’s author

Fiona Veitch Smith and Andy Catling have done an excellent job. The text is fun and accessible and imaginative, yet still faithful to the biblical story. And best of all, there are cows!
