Noah's Ark

By Peter Spier

The only text is the seventeenth-century Dutch poem, “The Flood,” by Jacobus Revius, that opens the book. The rest of the book is a visual interpretation of Noah and his unbelievably difficult task of tending the animals on the ark. Careful details and softly hued watercolors depict the story with reverence, humor, and delight.
