Review of Noah: A Wordless Picture Book by Mark Lundy

Noah:  A Wordless Picture Book by Mark Lundy is a picture book about Noah and the building of the Ark.  However, to call it just a picture book is a huge understatement.  The artwork is simply stunning!  You can see fine details down to the curls in the hair on a hand and that detail carries through every aspect of the book.  I could hear the words of the very familiar story as I looked at the pictures throughout.  Mr. Lundy's attention to detail in the art work is amazing.  I do have questions about some of the pictures as to the accuracy and I think some license was taken to add to the story.  I'm not sure all of the details in some of those pictures (i.e. - what appear to be Roman soldiers on horseback, dinosaurs that were not included on the ark when the rains started) should be included but a child could tell the story from the pictures.  I believe an older child could tell the story from the pictures, if they know the story to begin with but I'm not sure a young child, which is typically the audience for a picture book, would be able to tell the story or even begin to understand the details of the event.
