This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced and playful, yet meticulous in following the biblical narrative, Mark Ludy’s world-class art digs deeper than the Sunday-school tale of cuddly animals, exploring noah’s relationship with his family, the natural world, God - and a formidable engineering challenge.
It's true what they say, a picture is worth a thousands words. The pictures in this stunning book are so meaningful and gorgeous, that there isn't even a need for words at all. In case you haven't caught on, NOAH is wordless picture book filled with 64 pages of truly stunning pictures drawn by Mark Ludy. Part of me feels embarrassed that a children's picture book has me so fascinated but you really have to see it to believe it. Everyone knows the story of Noah's ark but no one has every told it quite like this before.
Z and I can spend an hour just looking at and talking about the pictures. And as an added bonus, you can find Squeakers the mouse on every page (and let me tell you, its not always easy! lol). This book is going to be a treasure to have in our house and I look forward to many hours of talking about it with my kids. I recommend this book for all ages and it would make such a wonderful Christmas present this year!
"Immerse yourself in this stunning wordless epic. Whatever your age, you’ll never read this story in the same way again."
Mark Ludy has written or illustrated eight children’s books including The Farmer, The Flower Man, The Grump, When I Was a Boy I Dreamed, When I Was a Girl I Dreamed, and Jujo the Youngest Tribesman.
