Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jan Brett's intricate illustrations against a beautiful papyrus background make a stunning picture book of a favorite story — this time featuring Noah's granddaughter. As the floodwaters rise, she helps take the animals onto the ark and get them settled down. But it's not easy when giraffes are sleeping next to pandas and lions are curled up with turkeys. Finally the gentle rocking of the ark lulls them all to sleep until the waters recede and Grandpa Noah, his family, and all the animals leave the ark. This simple telling, combined with extraordinary illustrations of every animal imaginable, makes On Noah's Ark perfect for young and old.

Review:

"In precise brushstrokes and vivid colors, Brett creates incredibly textured feathers and fur, and the appealing book design positions the images on backgrounds made to resemble papyrus scrolls." Booklist

Review:

"There's no mention of God or his relationship to Noah, nor any reason given for the Flood. The art, however, is characteristically striking." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Striking in its simplicity of telling, the watercolor and gouache artwork of birds, insects, and mammals breathes life into this apocryphal tale." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

In this board-book edition of her "New York Times"-bestselling picture book, Brett imagines the story of Noah through the eyes of his granddaughter. Full color.
