Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd WebberWhen I first found this book it was by accident and could not believe what I had in my hands. Ive seen the live show and the on screen movie version with Donny Osmond, and this is a book based on them.
Where do I start? A really feel the musical coming through and at points was singing it in my head instead of just reading it. I did notice a lot wording that I felt was different than the show but it has been so long that I could be mistaken.
The are is hilarious. There is a lot of blonds and redheads living in Ancient Egypt. I didnt realize that was a colour combo during the reign of the Pharaohs. There is also a real modern sort of twist to the art that really pulled it away from when the story takes place. It made the whole thing feel kinda spoofy.
A good, funny read for fans.

The story of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a tale that follows the journey of a dreamer. Joseph is the son of Jacob and one of twelve brothers. The brothers decide to sell Joseph into slavery after initially plotting to have him killed. Convincing their father that his favorite son has died, they reveal his tattered coat and believe that they are rid of him once and for all.

They arrange to have him killed and to prove his death, show their father the multicoloured coat smeared with blood. In fact, Joseph has been sold in slavery to the household of Potiphar who has him thrown in jail as he objects to the attraction between his wife and Joseph. Joseph's ability to interpret dreams is relayed to Pharaoh who has started to have a series of dreams. Joseph foresees seven years of full harvests and this to be followed by seven years of famine.

There he is bought as a slave by the wealthy Potiphar. He works hard and is promoted, eventually running the household. Joseph catches the eye of Mrs.
