Mr. Nodd's Ark by John Yeoman


Mr. Nodd's Ark by John Yeoman

Mr Nodd is a keen carpenter - he's made a wooden umbrella for his wife, wooden bicycles for his sons Ham and Shem, and a wooden romper-suit for baby Japhet. But when he builds a huge boat in his garden, Mr Nodd has finally gone too far. What use is a giant boat, marrooned in the garden? Then the weather forecast gives him his answer: serious floods are coming. Come with the whole Nodd family on an adventure to discover the perfect use for Mr Nodd's Ark.


Based loosely on the Biblical tale of Noah... Mr Nodd's Ark brings the story right up-to-date with a healthy dose of fun and humour. Early Years Educator
