Kenneth Steven
The Story About How Dogs Got Wet Noses

A fabulous twist on Noah's Ark.

When water floods the land, old Noah builds a huge ark and takes on board creepy-crawlies, farm animals and wild animals of every type. While they are out at sea something awful happens, the boat springs a leak! What on earth can they do? Luckily Noah knows a way.

This picture book is a lively retelling of the old fable about how dogs got wet noses.
