We all know the story of Noah and the ark. Who would have guessed, though, that his woolly friends onboard would help him make his most delightful discovery? Lise Lunge-Larsen's beguiling tale for readers 4 to 8 tells how inventive Noah realized the possibilities of wool felt, pictured in stylized mixed media paintings of a deep, rolling sea with window glimpses into the crowded ark.
"Lunge-Larsen gives a biblical character a touch of folklore in this fanciful tale.... The author provides some facts about felt in a brief afterword.... The story and the artwork, both simple and wonderfully complex, work well on many levels."—Booklist
