Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- Rather than retelling the entire story of Noah, Ludwig's version of an Israeli folktale concentrates on the difficulties of shipboard life. Noah has a real problem when elephants break into the storeroom and refuse to leave. Not only are they consuming everyone's rations, but they gain weight so rapidly that they cause the ark to tip. A hasty prayer brings advice from the Lord to tickle the hyena. As usual, Noah follows instructions, and the hyena's laugh begins a chain reaction that eventually solves the problem. The illustrations of the ark and its passengers aren't remarkably different from the dozens of others that have floated through picture books, but the cartoonlike characters reinforce the humor and add to the lighthearted spirit. Libraries may want to squeeze yet another variation of Noah's story onto their shelves. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
