Life aboard the ark must sometimes have been hard for the animals stowed by Noah. No room for the rattlesnake to shake her tail, no carrots for the horse. Even the lion is scared by the thunder and lightning. But with a little cooperation and thought for each other, the animals soon learn get on with each other until the day that the dove returns with an olive branch in her beak. These ten stories about the animals' life aboard the ark are full of mischief and humour, but their fable-like quality makes a sincere point about behaviour and getting along. The witty, expressive text about cute but cheeky animals is great for reading aloud, and is complemented by Tina Macnaughton's instantly appealing illustrations.
