Synopsis

The Vegetable Ark A Tale of Two Brothers by Kim Kane

We all know the story of Noah's Ark. But do we? In this gleeful twist on the original tale, Noah has a brother, Neil - and Noah and Neil are very different.Noah is wealthy and a bit of a show-off. Neil hums songs about peace. Noah brokers deals with a tense frown, while Neil wears his hair long and chats dreamily to pot plants.When it rains for forty days and forty nights, the race to find land is on: brother on brother, ark on boat, rack of lamb on bean.Sue deGennaro's inventive and charming artwork perfectly complements Kim Kane's delightfully clever story of deepest darkest ark rivalry.

About the Author

KIM KANE was born in London in a bed bequeathed by Wordsworth for '.a writer, a dancer or a poet'. Despite this auspicious beginning, she went on to practise law. Kim is a mother/stepmother of four children. She lives among vats of stewed pear, teetering piles of nappies and lots of tiny left shoes in a house near the beach. Kim writes to have some modicum of control in an otherwise highly chaotic life.SUE DeGENNARO studied film at uni, learnt to weld and draw at art school, then became an aerialist and performance artist. She now lives in Melbourne with her two girls, where her days are spent writing stories of things that make her giggle. She received an Australian Society of Authors mentorship in 2007, and has been shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Crichton Award 2010. Her most recent books include The Princess and the Packet of Frozen Peas with Tony Wilson (Notable Book, CBCA Awards 2010) and The Tomorrow Book with Jackie French.
