Description

To save his family from the big flood, Noah builds a boat. It has to be HUGE, because two of every animal are coming to stay?for forty days and forty nights. First in a trickle, then in a flood, animals of every colour and kind make their way into the hold. Bees and boas, camels and cats, every pair finds a place in these pages. No ark since Noah's own has shown such colour and diversity of life as that of Barbara Reid!
