Roger DeBlanck's Reviews > Noah's Ark
Spier’s wordless picture book is impressive in how it explores different emotions and circumstances that deal with the ark. Sadness sets in when the ark is closed up and all the animals that are unable to board must look on in despair as the waters rise. The book also conveys a strong sense of sacrifice and work ethic. Spier captures Noah’s frustration and worry in the beginning, and also his relief and gratitude at the end of the ordeal by showing how he and his family have been able to endure. The book attests to the marvel of Noah's experience, and it balances the extraordinary nature of the adventure with humorous moments and the stubbornness of certain animals, such as the rats that give Noah’s wife a scare.
