Children and adults will love this beautiful retelling of Noah’s Ark and the massive flood that destroyed the earth. The story is illustrated with paintings and drawings in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Featured artists include Gustave Courbet, Marc Chagall, John Henry Dearle, Lodewijk Tieling, Aurelio Luini, Giulio Bonasone, Jacob Bouttats, and Joseph Anton Koch. The book concludes with a note about each artwork.


"[T]his thoughtfully designed book deserves attention and a place on the crowded shelf of Noah's Ark retellings."
Kirkus Reviews
"Recounting the Great Flood by using several centuries’ worth of images, many from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a terrific idea, and much in these pages rewards close viewing."
Publishers Weekly
"A visually rich, majestic version of the familiar story."
— Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
