    A different take on the Noah story, particularly through the illustrations, which are fantastically vibrant. The Back to School Bookseller
    Review text
    When the animals on the ark become bored and irritable, quick-thinking Noah proposes a talent show to give their energies an outlet. It's a smashing success, as "the snakes both tied themselves in knots. / The leopards wiggled all their spots," the toucans, elephants, crocodiles and other acts perform, and "the talent show was such a ball / there's no room to tell it all." Lines of text float across big, bright scenes of cartoon creatures cavorting aboard a vessel that's striped like a beach umbrella and roomy enough to include a curtained stage. Closing with a burst of color brought on by a pair of newly hatched butterflies, last seen fluttering off toward the rainbow arcing overhead, this makes a particularly buoyant version of the world's best-known cruise.
