About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of nine flood (creation) myths from around the world retold for children.

Ages 6-12

Review: Noah and the ark may be the best known of the flood stories, but it is by no means the only one. Stories of a catatrophic, world destroying flood exist in so many cultures around the world that some people feel they are proof that such an event did occur. This collection includes nine stories from ancient Greece and Sumeria, India, Hawaii, China, the Maori people,Liberia, North Vietnam, and the Alabama nation of North America. There are similarities among some of the stories. The ancient Greek and Sumerian stories, for instance, both have gods warning particular people to build an ark in order to be saved from the punishment to be meted out to the wicked. Others have an animal give the warning, and one says the flood was caused by natural elements fighting among themselves. Although the flood is the primary theme of each story, there are also other themes which emerge including the origin of various peoples, the origin of the moon, and the need to listen to a higher being, whether it be god or nature. The stories end with the renewal of the earth and the continuation of life. Perhaps this is something we can learn from these tales, Krishnaswami suggestsw, that there is hope, even after disaster. All of the stories are short enough to be easily learned by tellers or enjoyed by young readers. Storytellers might wish for a bibliography of source material, but this is primarily a book for young readers so it is not surprising that one was not included. The illustrations by Birgitta Saflund create stunning images, reflecting the cultures from which the stories come. -- The Second Story Review, June 1996
