Description of this Book

At last all were gathered inside the ark. It heaved with animals, large and small. Mrs Noah wore a brand-new coat, with a hood and a cape - and very deep pockets. Lots of pockets. When Mr Noah builds the ark, he makes two lists - one for all the animals who will come on board and one for those troublesome creatures he will leave behind. Meanwhile, Mrs Noah gets out her sewing machine and makes a coat with very deep pockets. Lots of pockets.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Lyrical, witty, SO beautiful, and just a tiny bit subversive. Superb. * Playing by the Book * The beautiful, other-worldly illustrations by James Mayhew encapsulate the dreamlike feel of the story; they combine collage, shape and print-making to excellent effect. The lyrical text carries a significant message about our stewardship of the world. * Parents in Touch *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
