Way, way back, long ago, dogs had warm, dry noses. Folks didn't like dogs much at all. But there was this one little pup, who wasn't like other dogs.

The author mixes up a biblical story with a folktale-like account of how dogs became pets with wet noses. The story itself isn't bad, but the country bumpkin dialect that the author chooses to use is very distracting. It also removes the story of Noah from its original context in Mesopotamia, and thereby loses a lot of the cultural value that comes with an old, traditional story.

I felt the author tried to jam too many themes into this little book. It's about Noah's ark, but Noah apparently is a country-bumpkin log cabin kinda guy in this. And dogs are not liked. And there's the flood. And it's just kinda weird and I didn't like the dialect used at all.

Illustrations aren't bad though.

Author sets Noah's Flood in Appalachia. Cute story but the Appalachian dialogue seems a bit overboard.
