About the Book
A hundred years before the Great Flood, a man named Noah came home talking crazy. God wanted him to build the biggest ship the world had ever seen. The future of humanity depended on it. How would his wife respond? What would the neighbors think? Was it even feasible?
This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced and playful, yet meticulous in following the biblical narrative, Mark Ludy’s world-class art digs deeper than the Sunday-school tale of cuddly animals, exploring noah’s relationship with his family, the natural world, God - and a formidable engineering challenge.
Immerse yourself in this stunning wordless epic. Whatever your age, you’ll never read this story in the same way again.
Bonus: Find Squeakers the mouse on every page!

My Take on the Book
As I looked through this beautifully illustrated book that retold the story of Noah and the arc he built, I had to look through it again to notice all the details that Mark Lundy drew on each page. The expressions on the characters' faces definitely assisted in telling the story and helped the reader to understand the joy, confusion, fear, etc. that Noah and his family were experiencing.
The book tells the story so well. I think it might be helpful when using this book with children to actually read the story to the children before using the wordless picture book because then they can retell the story to the adult. Any way you decide to share this book, you will find it a joy and an amazing work of art too.
