It's going to rain, and God tells Noah that he must make a boat to keep the animals safe. But Noah doesn't know how to make a boat. Only with the help of his grandson, Little Noah, is he able to figure it out. By the time the rains begin to fall, Noah and Little Noah have made the world's greatest vessel and filled it with two of every kind of animal. Children will revel in the fact that Little Noah, not the adult, is the one who solves the problem. This is a wonderfully inventive retelling of one of the oldest stories in the world, complete with Bernard Lodge's distinctive lino-cut illustrations.

Bernard Lodge is an award-winning graphic designer whose interest in woodcut prints led him to create children's books, including Tanglebird, and to illustrate, among others, Grandma went to Market, written by Stella Blackstone. He lives in Surrey, England.From Kirkus Reviews:
Another attempt at the oft-told story of Noah's Ark. This handsomely designed lino-cut version, reminiscent of the early woodcuts of Blair Lent, sports a modern-day Grandfather Noah-- sort of a cross between Santa and Father Time. Alongside Noah is someone new to the old story, his grandson, Little Noah. This version emphasizes the step-by-step process of building a boat; human ingenuity is emphasized for all God will say is for Noah to ``work it out'' without divine plans or intervention. Little Noah comes up with the boat's shape and makeup, Noah with the boat's structure, and Mrs. Noah gets in on the act with a bit of cross-cut sawing and raising of planks. God provides Noah with a bit of shut-eye, while Mrs. Noah and Little Noah play ``I Spy'' aboard the ark. The biblical wickedness and consequent destruction and purging of the earth is omitted in this nearly secular account, leaving the tale without a context, yet replacing it with a folksy fable filled with levity rather than a moral. Diverting. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
