In this offshoot of the Noah story, the animals get bored while stuck on the Ark, prompting Noah to lead them in a talent show. A romping good time ensues, and culminates with the two quiet butterflies spectacularly breaking out of their cocoons, showing rainbow colors. Brought to us by the popular team of Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees, who together scored home runs with Dinosaurumpus and Down By The Cool of the Pool, among others, this rhythmic telling fails in a Jewish context as it manages to impart a version of the Noah story without any Jewish content. This book would generally work best as a read-aloud, but it contains several pages with multiple frames of pictures, thus making it difficult to actually use at storytime. However, the book continues Parker-Rees' tradition of vibrant and engaging watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations of fabulous animals, and has been nominated for the 2008 Kate Greenaway Medal for outstanding illustration of children's literature in the United Kingdom. Ages 4 - 8. Reviewed by Natasha Bergson-Michelson
Tony Mitton took a child through many animal encounters that weren't too far of a stretch on the imagination, with my children's favorite keeping their watchful eye on the growing caterpillars. The appeal of this story is all of the activity on board, and the book's illustrations also provide a playfulness that shows how God's handiwork could mean a month's plus of unique animal behavior. Guy Parker-Rees also pulls in vivid color and every page is filled with movement. Beautifully done!
This picture book gives a new twist to an old bible truth. Most kids are taught the story of noah's ark in Sunday School. This book picks up where the bible leaves off! The animals on the ark are getting grumpy and Noah's comes up with a plan to stop the cabin fever!

I really enjoyed reading this book with my son. He memorized it, I memorized. We read it every night for months. I'm disappointed he doesn't want me to read it as much anymore. lol. It really is a great book and got me interested in the author's other books.
Gorgeous, vibrant pictures and roll-off-the-tongue rhyme, this book is a hit with my 1 and 2 year olds. Join the animals aboard Noah's Ark as they strike a bit of cabin fever on board and decide to hold a talent show! Engaging storyline for preschoolers and pictures they will enjoy poring over and pointing out animals with you.
