My kids squealed with delight when I bought this book home. They loved the stand-up paper animals in pairs and enjoyed marching them into the ark again and again. This retelling of the bible story with an environmental message gets the thumbs up in our house Waterstone's Books Quarterly 20081001 This does it all. Child friendly people and animals are contained in a board book in a fold up carry case which doubles as an ark play set ... It's good value for parents and the slightly worthy subject matter will appeal to grandparents The Bookseller 20080919 Much more than just a book -- Rosalind Kerven The Northern Echo 20081121

About the Author

Rod Campbell was born in Scotland in 1945. His family moved to Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) when he was two years old. Despite his artistic talents, he had a scientific higher education and subsequently went to Britain where he obtained a doctorate in organic chemistry. Soon after, he gave up science to follow his interests in art. Since then he has created a number of hugely successful and innovative books for children, the best known being Dear Zoo. In 1987 he founded his own incredibly successful publishing company, Campbell Books, which was bought by Macmillan in 1995. Rod Campbell's approach to books for babies and toddlers is instinctive, with simplicity being paramount. He sees himself as a 'maker' of books rather than as an author or illustrator. He believes that however simple a story, it should always end either on an upbeat note or quietly resolved to everyone's satisfaction!
