…So along came the creatures, all in pairs,
flying through the windows, stepping up the stairs,
filling up the Ark with a racket and a row.
There were snakes in the stern and bears in the bow.

The adventure of Noah and the animals is brought to life in All Afloat on Noah’s Boat! With vibrant colours and clever rhymes, this is one storybook that will definitely capture every reader’s attention! Not only is this book exciting and fun, but it also displays a powerful message to kids everywhere. A message that holds true everyday; even the smallest person can make a difference.

Tony Mitton, author of All Afloat on Noah’s Boat lives with his wife and children in Cambridge, England. He has written many children’s storybooks such as Dinosaurumpus!, Down by the Cool of the Pool, and Spooky Hour. These are all great reads, so if you enjoy All Afloat on Noah’s Boat and find it as attention-grabbing as I did, I strongly recommend these other titles.

Guy Parker-Rees does a fantastic job in illustrating this book. He manages to make the animals all bright and amusing while fitting perfectly with the words of Tony Mitton. He has illustrated one other book for Mr. Mitton entitled Dinosaurumpus!

I thoroughly enjoyed this picture book! I give All Afloat on Noah’s Boat  5 shimmering stars! It was great!
