Nosy is a softcover picturebook for young Christians, rendering the Old Testament story of Passover and the Exodus from the viewpoint of a mother sheep, Baa Shirley. She lives in ancient Egypt with other sheep, her owner Benjamin, a big dog Dusty, and her beloved baby lamb Nosy. But history is about to take place--Passover is coming. Young Nosy dies, and Baa Shirley is heartbroken over his loss, but his blood protects the life Benjamin's firstborn son Saul. Baa Shirley and Dusty travel with Benjamin and Saul into the desert, trusting in the guidance of God. Only the will and protection of God can guide the refugees across the Red Sea! Colorful illustrations balance this heartfelt, emotional retelling of a biblical tale.
