Moses in Egypt by Lynne Reid Banks is a retelling of the story of Moses and the Exodus based partly on the Book of Exodus and the animated film Prince of Egypt.

As a disclaimer, this review will be pretty much focused on the character of Rameses as I was only interested in reading this for what other reviews called an even more sympathetic take on Rameses. He was my favourite character in Prince of Egypt and pretty much the only reason why I love the movie.

(view spoiler)

I'm sure that this book has or will be received better by people wanting a more traditional retelling of the Exodus, but it's not for me. I'll stick with the Prince of Egypt version of Rameses and Moses, thank you.
