Product description

Review

"It is said from time to time, the world is remade. 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." -- from the book "The book's innovative accordion design illustrated in the Bengal Patua style of scroll painting is just one of the sumptuous design elements that distinguish it as a remarkable offering. . . A gorgeous re-envisioning of an old, old story." -- Kirkus Reviews Starred Review "This striking version is illustrated by Joydeb Chitrakar in a Bengali style of scroll painting--with rich colors, strong black lines, and appealingly primitive renderings of people and creatures. The pages are connected, accordion-style, so that a child can turn the pages, as in a regular book, or pull the whole thing out flat to see the story of Noah's ark unfurling" -- The Wall Street Journal "The stunning illustrations--which really constitute one continual image--reflect an openhearted, instantly accessible folk art aesthetic . . . a glorious example of storytelling's universality." -- Publishers Weekly Starred Review "This beautifully designed and intelligently produced retelling of the flood expands the bounds of bookmaking." -- Shelf Awareness "The book s innovative accordion design illustrated in the Bengal Patua style of scroll painting is just one of the sumptuous design elements that distinguish it as a remarkable offering. . .
