'Time to go,' says Mr Monkey to Mrs Monkey. Noah had finished building the ark, God had told him to call the animals and the rain was beginning to fall. But Mrs Monkey was not ready. She wanted a little fruit to eat on the trip. 'A nice mixture,' she thought. Only she took an awfully long time to collect her fruit, and by then the ark had floated away! How she finally reaches the ark needs more than a little intervention from God and a friendly animal or two - but then Mrs Monkey still manages to pull a heavenly surprise out of the bag. This new edition of Judith Kerr's highly entertaining version of the "Great Flood" ends spectacularly in a special four-page fold-out.
