1985 Picture Books
Ages: 5 - 8 yrs.
By: Glen Rounds
ISBN: 0823408809
Paperback Price: $5.95
Glen Rounds takes the flood story, bends it completely out of shape, and stretches it into a ridiculous, very funny tall tale. Mrs. Noah- Rounds gives her fly-away red hair- goes into a snit when a bunch of wild animals lumber aboard and overcrowd the newly finished ark. Nor is her mood improved by the fact that she is unable to wash while it rains. By the forty-first day, she is thoroughly disgruntled, and her family is thoroughly dirty. On that first sunshiny morning, she is determined to let nothing stand in her way- most certainly not a minor detail like the lack of a clothesline.
