"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." — 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

"An arresting first image—God’s huge, baleful eye—is the visual source of all that follows. . . provocative" — The Horn Book Magazine

"This beautifully designed and intelligently produced retelling of the flood expands the bounds of bookmaking." — Shelf Awareness

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 an ancient, universal story. Suitable for children ages 6+.
