Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–In this rhymed account of Noah's famous voyage, the patriarch builds a rainbow-striped cruise ship and urges the animal pairs to board to escape the impending flood. Unending rain takes its toll on the critters' dispositions; some grow bored and others throw tantrums. Fortunately, the sun soon reappears, and Noah devises a plan to pass the time while the waters recede: he has the animals perform various tricks in a high-energy talent show. With all the noise and activity, the efforts of two caterpillars that quietly encase themselves in cocoons are overlooked by everyone but Noah. Their transformation into brilliant butterflies offers a fitting finale to the lengthy journey. Mitton's verse propels the story, which should be read aloud for maximum bounce and effectiveness. Parker-Rees's action-packed illustrations and the book's large format also facilitate group sharing. The creatures' facial expressions and body postures reveal their emotions, especially when they grow crabby and disgruntled. Those searching for a bedtime version of Noah's tale will need to look elsewhere–this one is designed for active storytime fun.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato

A different take on the Noah story, particularly through the illustrations, which are fantastically vibrant. The Back to School Bookseller --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This picture book gives a new twist to an old bible truth. Most kids are taught the story of noah's ark in Sunday School. This book picks up where the bible leaves off! The animals on the ark are getting grumpy and Noah's comes up with a plan to stop the cabin fever!

Gorgeous, vibrant pictures and roll-off-the-tongue rhyme, this book is a hit with my 1 and 2 year olds. Join the animals aboard Noah's Ark as they strike a bit of cabin fever on board and decide to hold a talent show! Engaging storyline for preschoolers and pictures they will enjoy poring over and pointing out animals with you.

Format: Hardcover
Life on Noah's Ark is busy and noisy - and close quarters are getting everybody grumpy. So Noah decides to invite warring factions to a creature cabaret to get the Ark in fun mode - but what animal act will form the grand finale? A rollicking rhyme exposes 'animal tantrums and insect miffs' alike while a fun story line offers up an unexpected conclusion perfect for picturebook collections seeking something different.

I really enjoyed reading this book with my son. He memorized it, I memorized. We read it every night for months. I'm disappointed he doesn't want me to read it as much anymore. lol.
It really is a great book and got me interested in the author's other books.

Tony Mitton took a child through many animal encounters that weren't too far of a stretch on the imagination, with my children's favorite keeping their watchful eye on the growing caterpillars. The appeal of this story is all of the activity on board, and the book's illustrations also provide a playfulness that shows how God's handiwork could mean a month's plus of unique animal behavior. Guy Parker-Rees also pulls in vivid color and every page is filled with movement. Beautifully done!
