Note: 
In this midrashic interpretation of the first three chapters of Genesis, Lester combines Jewish and African-American storytelling traditions. Creation here is an on-going act in which God takes many forms: male, female, white, black, animal. The writing is lyrical and metaphoric, filled with movement and color that Lisker's wonderful illustrations reflect. In these profound and provocative tales, Lester writes about serious matters with a gentle, seductive humor.
