Throughout his musical carreer with the Police and as a phenomenal solo artist, Sting has commanded the world's attention as an innovator with enormous appeal.
Now this multiple-Grammy-winning icon channels his considerable talents in a fresh, new direction with this sharp re-telling of one of the most beloved stories in history.
Rock Steady is a modern spin on the tale of Noah's Ark. Sting has adapted the lyrics of his own song, and his unique poetry colors this classic story with the concerns of the new millenium. A timeless legend, the parable of Noah's Ark takes on a new significance in the light of Sting's creative genius. Rock Steady reminds us that human beings are blessed, and that we must protect the earth that has given us life.
Proceeds from Rock Steady will be donated to the Rainforest Foundation, an organization dedicated to preserving the Brazilian rainforests and the cultures that thrive there.

Bright colors and simple graphics accompany Sting's modern, musical retelling of the Noah's Ark story as two modern young adults join an old guy with a beard and pairs of all the animals on a boat to commune with nature. There don't seem to be any other people around to drown. The lyrics are printed on one page at the end of the book. All proceeds benefit the Rainforest Foundation; an explanation at the beginning of the book describes the origin of the organization.
Rock Steady is a great children's book. Sting does an excellent job of telling the story of Noah's Ark. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I highly recommend it.
Special art indeed! Sting's song never looked so good as in this book!
