Meet at the Ark at Eight! Summary


Meet at the Ark at Eight! by Ulrich Hub

Snow and ice and ice and snow all around, and nothing for three penguins to do but fight with each other and smell slightly of fish. But are they good penguins or bad penguins? And if they're a bit bad then what's the worst that... What? Building an ark? The whole world is going to be flooded? Well! They should probably get on that ark. Meet at the Ark at Eight is a delight: a funny, odd and strangely moral story of three penguins, a plump,over-worked dove, a beautiful butterfly that may or may not get done in, and aquite apologetic God. ''Extremely funny ... I can only heartily encourage you to read this [book, which] hides real delight and serious philosophizing in between its slim, sensational pages.' Playing by the Book 'An engaging book for practically any age' Spectator Best Children's Authors of 2015 An astonishing book... one of a kind Jewish Chronicle 'Hub manages to recreate the ancient tale with a hilarious twist and keen observations on friendship, how our decisions impact those around us, and of course, religion... Deserves to be read by everyone' Library Mice 'A complete triumph five stars' Ricochet 'A wonderfully funny story which asks many important questions and provides a wealth of clever answers' Lilipuz 'Punchy, funny, brilliantly illustrated' Forum 'Outstandingly funny... deals with the important questions about God and life, without forcing the reader too early to accept concrete answers WERTvolle Bucher 'I have rarely read such an impressive children's book which is as deliciously amusing Kids It's rare to be able to laugh so much while reading a book based on such a serious biblical source' Catholic Children's and YA Award 'Hilarious but strangely profound' Lady 'Questions galore after eight...to make you laugh and think' Alligator's Mouth bookshop, Richmond '5 out of 5 stars' LaChouett 'Bloody marvellous' Sam Leith 'Wonderfully funny, facetious, liberating and at the same time substantial... an unusually fun, thoughtful read for everyone!'Kinderbuch Couch Ulrich Hub is a German writer, actor, director and screenwriter.
