All Aboard! Now back in print! A rollicking retelling of the story of Noah’s ark—one of the greatest stories in the Bible—and a timely reminder that our world and its inhabitants need our care.
Noah is happy that his ark was finished in time for the great flood. It offers protection to all animals on earth. But it doesn't take long for the animals to become dissatisfied: the giraffe doesn't have enough space, the monkeys complain about the leaky roof. Fortunately, the white dove appears shortly afterwards and brings long-awaited news: land is in sight!
The story of Noah's Ark has been told countless times, but rarely as child-friendly and humorously as by Piotr and Jozef Wilkon.
Józef and Piotr Wilkon are a prestigious duo—Józef is considered one of the most famous illustrators of books in Poland and his son, Piotr, is a well known theater director and writer.
“The ark is a symbol for me. Today we have to think of nature just as Noah thinks of animals.”—Józef Wilkon
