Summary

"It is said from time to time, the world is re-made. Ancient stories talk of an age when a huge flood destroyed the earth, leaving nothing behind. You may have heard it before, but great tales must be retold and so I will tell it now in my way, as I have heard it said." Here is the story of Noah, his wife and children, and the pairs of animals they rescued from the great, destructive flood. In this Indian version of the Biblical tale, talented Bengali Patua scroll painter Joydeb Chitrakar leads the reader from a deluge of water to a rainbow of hope. A book that can be leafed through in the traditional way, or unfolded out as an accordion, the vibrant illustrations and concise text provide a singular approach to a very ancient, universal story. Suitable for children ages seven and up.
