Noah needs help building an ark to save the animals so he can have a monopoly on the meat market after the flood. But his vegetarian, hippy brother is more interested in saving plants and seeds. This is a great picture book with lovely illustrations with many facets to explore and discuss. I am still trying to figure out if there is a connection between this book and Intruders in the Dust by William Faulkner.

I read this book for Reader's Cup. It was a really great picture book. The drawings are really nice and it has a great message behind it.
