Summary
In the first book of the Young Joseph series, we find Joseph living in Canaan with his dad, stepmothers, eleven brothers - and lots of scene-stealing cows! Joseph is his father's favourite, which makes his brothers very cross, especially when he tells them about the dream he has had in which the sun, moon and eleven stars bow down to him. To cheer him up, Joseph's dad gives him a beautiful coat of many colours - a 'rainbow robe' to remind him that God loves everyone - even his brothers.

Press Reviews

Praise for the Young David series:
A superb new series for primary-school children by Fiona Veitch Smith ... It stirred my own limp faith, let alone my three-year-old’s burgeoning spirituality.
It was moving, too, to hear my child’s voice so clearly in David’s many phrases: “Dear God, why doesn’t anyone want to play with me?”, or in the eager question, “Will I get a crown?” after his anointing – so well does the author understand the modern child.'

- Jemima Thackeray

Praise for David and the Hairy Beast: Absolutely fantastic! Our boys love this book - highly recommended.

- Amazon review

Delightful tale for the very young ... this story of typical childhood fears is sensitively and humorously explored using lively, vivid text ... and beautiful illustrations.
