Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With childlike verve, the talented colorist Cousins adapts the Bible story into a picture book for the very young. The familiar gathering of animals two by two onto the ark before the great flood takes on a gentle and joyous tone as expressed by Cousins's brief and simple sentences and by her naive painted figures. Noah wears a kind, comforting smile and provides the benevolent leadership this story calls for. The text will naturally have added appeal for those seeking an introduction to the literature of the Bible; however, the book's airy design and playfully rendered creatures should attract a large audience. Endpapers featuring a brilliant menagerie of passengers great and small are not to be missed. Ages 2-up. (Aug.)

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Lucy Cousin's artwork is delightfully distinctive and well suited to the visual sensibilities of young children. Her characteristic solid backgrounds showcase the fun ark and numerous animals. This very simple retelling of the Bible story is formatted as a board book for the smallest children. The original edition received Best Book of the Year Awards from Parents and Parenting magazines. 1997 (orig.

Meet the Author

Lucy Cousins

Lucy Cousins, the creator of Maisy the mouse, says she wanted to retell the story of Noah's ark because she loves drawing animals. "It's a wonderful story to illustrate because it's the epitome of all animal stories. And it's a story that all kids love and should know."

    Great Toddler Book!

    My 19 month old can not get enough of this book! She loves the pictures of all of the different animals, and especially Noah! She talks about the book all of the time, and now that it's near Christmas, she sees a Santa Claus and calls him Noah. This is a great version of Noah's Ark, simple and with wonderful pictures.
