As he watched from on high, perhaps it did not take God too long to realise that he had put too much emphasis on finding a righteous person and not enough on finding a master-craftsman with other necessary and relevant qualities. For someone whoMoreAs he watched from on high, perhaps it did not take God too long to realise that he had put too much emphasis on finding a righteous person and not enough on finding a master-craftsman with other necessary and relevant qualities. For someone who created the world in seven days, this must have been a bit of a set-back.In this journal, which is full of humour, pathos and mismanagement and written day by day by Noah himself, we learn that he too has much on his mind dealing with the momentous task thrust upon him.There is for example his wife Momma to pacify.Day 5: “You tell HIM it will be punishment enough if I can’t put my washing out for a week.

Does He have to be so drastic?”Then there are health and safety issues.Day 75: “Lord, if we have to lose any fingers, please let it be our little fingers.” Attention to detail is everything.And accidents.Day 228: I was covered in wood-shavings – which stuck to my body wherever there was pitch. There was pitch everywhere.Day 323: “At supper, I told them that it was unfortunate for Ham to have splinters in his bottom, but nothing was impossible if we all pulled together.

Then they all laughed and I still don’t know why.And moments when he learns to hold his nerve.Day 336: He seems to be under some impression that I am steering it … he asked if I would put up a chart showing our position.The author has written this well-known story in such an unique way, it will have wide appeal from eight to eighty-eight. It is a journal that describes every mishap as Noah grapples with building a huge ark, faces the pathos of leaving behind his fellow man and then commands a ship he cannot steer, a family he cannot satisfy, and all the while tries to cope with the uneasy peace of the animals on three decks.

Let us leave the last word to Momma.Day 542: “You just be sure you land this ark back where we started,” she said, “because I’m not spending the rest of my life going down these ramps and walking along three decks, just to answer the door.”“Very well written – follows on from other biblical updates such as Joseph and His Technicolour Dream Coat.

Would lend itself to serialisation in a Sunday Supplement.”Roger Evans: PPA Columnist of the Year.Regular Columnist for 30 years.Author.“A fascinating and amusing book … highly credible answers to things that have always bothered me … how did the animals get on to the Ark … and how WERE they looked after during the flood?!

The characters are really well drawn, giving me a clear mental picture of their appearance, personalities and interactions … clever overtones of Noah’s management problems.Although I know the ending, the book held my complete attention throughout and the Ark’s arrival on dry land was both funny and moving at the same time. I can unreservedly recommend to readers of all ages.”Martin Holmes: Former Registered Inspector of Schools in Wales – Estyn.School Advisor.“Tremendous … unique … will have universal appeal … there will surely be a film.”Chris Lawrence: BAFTA Award-Winning Film Editor
