PLEASE READ! WONDERFUL!

This is a wonderful rendition of Noah's Ark. Made me really think past the story I've always been told and see what hardships Noah's family had to go through (I'm a Christian, so I really appreciate that this author wrote something that helps us relate to the people from the Bible). Definitely a must-read.

I am a mature 11 year old. Is this ok to read for me?

Not for light reading

While thought provoking, this might raise questions you are not ready to answer with younger children. Noah's family is hardly portrayed in a positive light. I found myself questioning many things. Readers need to have some developed critical thinking skills to be able to read and process the scenarios this book proposes. This does not simply expand the bible story we are familiar with... it turns it on its head and inside out in sometimes uncomfortable ways. I strongly recommend parents read this before or with their child to be able to discuss it in depth.
