Mrs. Noah's Pockets

Mrs. Noah’s Pockets by Jackie Morris, illustrated by James Mayhew, introduces a wife for Noah. She watches him build his boat and gather the creatures that will sail with them. He looks forward to tidying up the world a bit and leaving some troublesome creatures behind. She starts making a dress with lots of deep pockets and takes a last walk through the Mythic Wood before they set off. Dreamlike illustrations perfectly capture the magical elements of the story
