AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'We all know the story of Noah's Ark. But do we?

'In this gleeful twist on the original tale, Noah has a brother, Neil - and Noah and Neil are very different. Noah is wealthy and a bit of a show-off. Neil hums songs about peace. Noah brokers deals with a tense frown, while Neil wears his hair long and chats dreamily to pot plants.

'When it rains for forty days and forty nights, the race to find land is on: brother on brother, ark on boat, rack of lamb on bean...

'Sue deGennaro's inventive and charming artwork perfectly complements Kim Kane's delightfully clever story of deepest darkest ark rivalry.' (From the publisher's website.)
