Review: Noah's Ark

Noah and his ark - that Biblical tale - is given the hip, cool, thoroughly modern treatment in this truly gorgeous picture book by classic talent Dick Bruna.

Using his trademark illustrations of delectable block colour and adorable characters, even the typical Dick Bruna text font makes this book pure visual delight.

Children will love revisiting this story, complete with a full double page spread of rain drops - with modernised text and dialogue. I simply love it when Noah watches his dove return without a twig and simply says, "We must just wait a bit."

Adorable. Loving the long-book format, too.
