Noah can’t find so much as a feather, although he’s searched the ark from top to bottom for his playmates. There’s only one place left they could be, and that's the room with the sign on the door that says NO ANIMALS—Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s bedroom. When Noah opens the door, the room is suspiciously empty . . .   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!   Lift 25 double-sided flaps and a large fold-out flap on the final page to reveal the animals hiding, dressed ridiculously in Mr. and Mrs. Noah’s clothes!

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. Peter first became interested in writing for children after the birth of his son, Theo. Two years later he and his wife swapped a minuscule flat in North London for a spacious house in South Devon, an area where you cannot throw a fresh scone with jam and clotted cream without hitting another writer. He now has two children, Theo (7) and Tara (4), to try out his story ideas on. Peter's favourite animals are llamas.   Lynne Chapman has illustrated more than 30 children's books. She works in pastels, creating humorous but beautiful drawings that bring a whole range of characters to life, and burst with fun and vibrant colour. She loves the hands-on messiness of the chalk, its colour palette and unique texture. Lynne lives and works in Sheffield with her husband. When not in her studio, or out visiting schools, Lynne likes to walk on the Derbyshire moors near her home, rummage in second-hand bookshops, jive and eat Thai food. She is also part of The Electric Tomatoes, a group of writers who perform in local venues, and is a regular guest on BBC Radio Sheffield. Her website is www.lynnechapman.co.uk Lynne's favourite animals are wallabies.
