Staff Reviews

Christopher Moore is arguably one of the most intriguing and clever authors I have had the pleasure of reading. He has the incredible talent of mixing historic figures into fictional situations, which make the reader wish history was truly written that way. And Lamb is his best showing of this talent. He takes on the task of sharing the early life of Jesus, earlier known as Joshua, through the view of his best friend, Biff. Moore creates a world where mistakes, acceptance, and crushes on beautiful ladies are wound perfectly into the antics of young boys with a penchant for mischief. I spent my family vacation laughing obnoxiously loud in not so appropriate venues due to this book. Take a chance on him and I promise you'll enjoy the ride with Biff or any of the other characters in his stories for that matter. --Meghan


Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have read—and reread—Christopher Moore's irreverent, iconoclastic, and divinely funny tale of the early life of Jesus Christ as witnessed by his boyhood pal Levi bar Alphaeus (a.k.a. Biff). Now, in this special (check out the cool red ribbon marker, gilt-edged pages, and gold lettering) gift edition of Christopher Moore's bestselling Lamb, you, too, can find out what really happened between the manger and the Sermon on the Mount. And, in a new afterword written expressly for this edition, Christopher Moore addresses some of the most frequently asked questions he's received from readers since Lamb's initial publication, about the book and himself.

Fresh, funny, poignant, and wise, this special gift edition of Lamb is cause for rejoicing among readers everywhere.
