This tale is straight from the Bible, with no surprises, but the illustrations that tell it are masterpieces. Drawn with delicate black ink lines and painted with an amazingly sensitive touch of watercolor, pages are blocked with several pictures that teem with life, emotion, and humor.

This is a wonderful book, just one of the many that demonstrate Peter Spier's talents as an illustrator and storyteller. It begins with the translation of a Dutch poem about Noah's ark written in the 1600s by Jacobus Revius. From then on, it belongs to Spiers and the world he creates with his pen and paints.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
