"the book is a triumph, the definitive Noah''s Ark."—Publishers Weekly

Winner of the Caldecott Medal, an ALA Notable Children''s Book, and a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, Peter Spier''s Noah''s Ark has been the iconic edition of this tale for nearly 40 years, in print continuously since its debut in 1977.

In Spier''s imaginative retelling, readers witness the danger and the grandeur of the terrifying flood but also the lighter moments: Noah''s wife jumping on a crate to avoid the rats; Noah shooing all but two bees from a busy hive; and all the animal babies being born in the spring. It''s an illustration feat that''s both majestic and tender.
