Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ayliffe's delicate collage captures the action well, and her representations of people and animals have a friendly, cartoony feel." — Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews
In 13 lines of verse and simple cut-paper art, Rock and Ayliffe manage to tell the story of Noah and the Flood. The language is simple and direct enough for young children to grasp. Parents should take note that, unlike some children's versions of the story, the text is true to Genesis and makes it clear that God causes the flood because the "world has all gone bad." Despite a couple of small wobbles, the rhyme and meter are fluid. While Ayliffe's delicate collage captures the action well, and her representations of people and animals have a friendly, cartoony feel, the 4-inch-square trim size does not give the images room to breathe and makes it difficult for little eyes to pore over the detailed scenes. A laudable attempt that would have better served this iconic story in a larger format. (Board book. 2-4)
