In EXODUS, STAGE LEFT, Legion Ayers is rescued by the lovely Suhad, courtier to Ramses II, after arriving in Ancient Egypt buried up to his neck in desert sands. His memory impaired, he appears... More > before Ramses II, surviving the Great King’s wrath in a scene out of Mel Brooks. Outside the court he meets the prince Moses, then witnesses Moses’s slaying of the taskmaster.

Gargantua and the Picrochole Challenge By David Duke-Evans
eBook (ePub): $6.40
Grandgouzier, king and giant, knows nothing of his early ancestors when he takes the throne of Utopia and so dispatches his sage Alcofrybas to an underground cavern where the ancient secrets are... More > stored to establish the nobility of the family. His son, Prince Gargantua, grows from his food-addicted infancy into a fun-loving and adventuresome giant in his teens, a defiant prankster. Gargantua is suddenly recalled from adventures afar to defend his father’s kingdom from an attack by the evil Picrochole. Can Gargantua and his squad of friends and courtiers save the kingdom or will Picrochole succeed in stealing the throne? David Duke-Evans has reconstructed these episodes from the 16th century French chronicles of Francois Rabelais so as to add the story’s rumbustious characters to a new audience of older children in a funny and engaging way. The book features a series of original colour pieces by artist Fran Thornton which bring the bizarre cast of characters to life.< Less
The Five Books of Moses: EXODUS By Jeanne Gossett Halsey

From Exodus 7: My imagination takes me to Pharaoh's throne-room where his courtiers are pacing around and muttering, "That Moses needs to go down! Those Hebrews need to be punished... More > again!" Only a small percentage of the Egyptian population grumbled against Moses; most of them were friendly with their Hebrew counterparts, and willingly shared their silver and gold with them as parting gifts. (My goodness, prosperity in a time when the world is falling apart — imagine that!) Shows how out-of-touch with the grassroots that politicians can be. Then there's this "Tweet" that Moses sends to Pharaoh as a parting shot: "All these your servants will come down to me and bow themselves before me, saying 'Go out, you and all the people who follow you,' and after that, I will go out." And he went out from Pharaoh in hot anger" (Exodus 11:8). Sounds familiar? I guess people haven't changed that much in 5,000 years.< Less

More > (French: [fʁɑ̃swa pjɛʁ ɡijom ɡizo]; 4 October 1787 – 12 September 1874) was a French historian, orator, and statesman. Guizot was a dominant figure in French politics prior to the Revolution of 1848, a conservative liberal who opposed the attempt by King Charles X to usurp legislative power, and worked to sustain a constitutional monarchy following the July Revolution of 1830.He then served the "citizen king" Louis Philippe, as Minister of Education, 1832–37, ambassador to London, Foreign Minister 1840–1847, and finally Prime Minister of France from 19 September 1847 to 23 February 1848. Guizot's influence was critical in expanding public education, which under his ministry saw the creation of primary schools in every French commune.
