Benjamin and the Silver Goblet
By Jacqueline Jules
Illustrated by Natascia Ugliano
Paperback, Kar-Ben Publishing
When drought befalls Canaan, Jacob's sons travel to Egypt looking for food. They do not recognize their brother Joseph, now governor of the land, who wonders whether his brothers have changed since the day they sold him into slavery. Joseph hides his silver goblet in youngest brother Benjamin's pack as a test for his brothers. Would they abandon Benjamin, too?
Told through the eyes of young Benjamin, the story of Joseph's test and the dramatic reunion of the brothers will capture the imagination of readers young and old.
