Noah can’t find so much as a feather, although he’s searched the ark from top to bottom for his playmates. There’s only one place left they could be, and that's the room with the sign on the door that says NO ANIMALS—Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s bedroom. When Noah opens the door, the room is suspiciously empty . . .

But who’s that wriggling under the duvet?
Llamas in pyjamas and baboons in pink pantaloons!

And who’s that squashed behind the chest of drawers?
Bears in flares and wombats in combats!

Lift 25 double-sided flaps and a large fold-out flap on the final page to reveal the animals hiding, dressed ridiculously in Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s clothes!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The animals are cleverly illustrated . . . and the rich vocabulary offers some delicious variety."  —Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews
This British import offers an amusing look at the Noah's Ark story, in a design for preschoolers with sturdy coated pages and a lift-the-flap format well suited to the hide-and-seek theme. When the animals choose their hiding places aboard the Ark, they sneak into the forbidden territory of Mr. and Mrs. Noah's well-equipped cabin and bathroom. As Noah searches the cabin with the repeated refrain of "found you," flaps lift to reveal pairs of animals wearing items of clothing that rhyme with each name: baboons in pantaloons, goats in coats, dogs in clogs, etc. The flap engineering is ingenious, the animals are cleverly illustrated by Chapman and the rich vocabulary offers some delicious variety for young listeners. A final spread has a double-page flap that folds down to reveal all the characters joyously dancing in a conga line. There is no religious content beyond the Noah's Ark premise; this version of the story is just for the fun of peeking behind the 25 flaps. (Religion/picture book. 3-5)
