In this Romanian folk version of the Noah story, getting the animals to march, two by two, onto the ark is the easy part. It’s Noah’s stubborn wife who insists that she’s staying on dry land. Frustrated, Noah finally declares, Oh, you devil, come in!” and not only persuades his reluctant wife but also gives the Devil himself the invitation he needed to come aboard.

Master storyteller Neil Philip retells the familiar tale of Noah with numerous witty folktale twists. Filled with adventure and humor, the story is richly illustrated in watercolor with sparkling gold leaf accents. Author’s note.
