Publisher's Description

"Noah was a righteous man," says Isaac Bashevis Singer, so he and his family were to be saved from the flood. But rumor had it that only the best of all living creatures were to be taken aboard the Ark with Noah. In Why Noah Chose the Dove, a fresh and lively approach to the age-old account, Isaac Bashevis Singer sets down the dialogue of the animals as they vie with one another for a place on the Ark.

Editorial Reviews

Singer's retelling from the Old Testament gives a new dimension to the story of the Flood. Children will enjoy hearing the different animals praise their own special qualities so that each will be assured a place on Noah's Ark. Of course, all are taken on board, but because the dove is the only one that did not boast, Noah makes the bird his messenger. Commenting that there are more doves in the world today than there are ferocious beasts, Singers says, 'The dove lives happily without fighting. It is the bird of peace.' Eric Carle's brightly colored collages make this an inviting addition to collections.
Eric Carle, who has a special way with animals, contributes sumptuous pictures to a book which is not to be missed.
This great storyteller has put a new and mildly moral twist on the story of Noah's Ark . . . and Eric Carle does not disappoint. His cut-out portraits of the animals are colorful and vigorous, and, combined with his paintings, varied and provocative. This is good stuff for hungry little eyes.
