A deliciously funny tale about Noah's SECOND ark, from the bestselling author of the Hairy Maclary and Friends series.

'Sam,' he said kindly,
'you've nothing to do
and I really need help
with this two-by-two zoo.
My problems are solved
if you're quick off the mark -
you can take all the rest
in my second-best Ark.'

Noah's Ark is jam-packed but there's still an enormous queue of animals waiting to board. So Noah asks his friend Sam Jam Balu to take the other ark . . .

But is Sam Jam Balu ready for the hip-hopping hippos, burrowing flumps and candy-striped camels with comical humps?


Rich and deliciously funny


Dodd's words and rhythms roll around the tongue and are delightful to read aloud in this story about the second ark Noah built when his first one was full
