The story of Noah and the Ark is a favorite Bible story for many. I have found a beautifully illustrated, wordless picture book version of it from Plough Publishing that I want to share with y’all.
This hardbound version gives an amazing visual portrayal of the story. I love how the illustrator made sure that Noah and his family look like they could be from anywhere. I can see so many nationalities in these faces. The illustrations give lots of detail into the everyday life of people in Biblical time. Beautiful. Extremely well done.
A hundred years before the Great Flood, a man named Noah came home talking crazy. God wanted him to build the biggest ship the world had ever seen. The future of humanity depended on it. How would his wife respond? What would the neighbors think? Was it even feasible?
This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced, playful, and 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.
Immerse yourself in this stunning wordless epic. Whatever your age, you’ll never read this story in the same way again.
Bonus: Find Squeakers the mouse on every page.
