"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.
ISAAC BASHEVIS SINGER (1902-1991), winner of the 1978 Nobel Prize for Literature, has written many distinguished books for children, including When Shlemiel Went to Warsaw, The Fearsome Inn, and Zlateh the Goat--all of which were Newbery Honor Books; A Day of Pleasure, which won the 1970 National Book Award for Children's Literature; Mazel and Schlimazel; The Wicked City; and The Fools of Chelm.
ERIC CARLE is one of America's leading children's book illustrators. In addition to the classic children's books he created for Henry Holt Books for Young Readers with Bill Martin Jr, he is author and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
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.
