A funny and silly lift-the-flap picture book about the animals on Noah's ark from Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author Peter Bently (Cat's Ahoy!), author and Lynne Chapman (Giddy Goat).


All aboard for a silly game of hide and seek! It's raining - again! - and Noah and the animals are bored. So they play hide and seek! But who's that wriggling under the duvet? Llamas in pyjamas and baboons in pink pantaloons! And who's that squashed behind the chest of drawers? Bears in flares and wombats in combats!


Combining rhyme and repetition, this humorous take on the tale of Noah's Ark is ideal for reading aloud with children. While the bright and fresh animal illustrations are made even more interactive thanks to the flaps hidden throughout this gem.


Lift-the-flap books don't come much better than this. Perfect interactive bedtime reading for kids aged 3+.


For everyone who loved Bears on the Stairs and Class Two at the Zoo.


Peter Bently is the award-winning best-selling picture book author of Shark in the Dark, Lark in the Ark, The Great Dog Bottom Swap and Cats Ahoy! He won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2011.


Lynne Chapman has illustrated more than 30 children's books including the much-loved Giddy Goat, When You're not Looking! and Class Two at the Zoo.

5 stars
This was a really fun book for bedtime. All the animals were playing hide and seek from Noah. The rhyming text was very similar to the ‘Oi Frog’ books, with llamas in pyjamas etc. There were lots of flaps to peep under which my children loved.

4 stars
A funny, lift-the-flap book with silly rhyming text. My little girl likes the fact that the flaps come in all different sizes and there is more than one to find on each page. My only slight criticism is that Noah's wife is worried about her washing. An unnecessary reinforcement of gender stereotyping.
