"All aboard!" cried Noah, "Shut the door!"
And down came the rain as never before.
To save his family from the big flood, Noah builds a boat. It has to be HUGE, because two of every animal are coming to stay... for forty days and nights. First in a trickle, then in a flood, animals of every colour and kind make their way into the hold. Bees and boas, camels and cats, every pair finds a place in these pages. No ark since Noah's own has shown such colour and diversity of life as that of Barbara Reid!
