Description

News reaches a pair of penguins that a great flood is coming to destroy the earth -- and that they are the only two penguins who have been chosen to board Noah's Ark. They decide, however, to smuggle their friend aboard in a suitcase, and a wild forty-day journey ensues.
This creative twist on the classic biblical tale encourages readers to ask questions about God, though it never presumes that the answers will be quick and easy. Ulrich Hub's humorous, yet thought-provoking retelling of this well-known Bible story is complemented by Jorg Muhle's witty illustrations.
