Mrs Noah's Vegetable Ark

Mrs Noah's Vegetable Ark

by Pasquali, Lavis




The animals are taken care of—but what about all the plants? An environmental take on the beloved Noah's Ark tale.
While Mr. Noah is busy building his ark, Mrs. Noah has a sudden thought—what about her vegetable garden? And the fruit trees? And everything she has spent years sowing, growing, and tending? They'll get washed away when the rain comes! So while the animal ark venture goes ahead, Mrs. Noah begins collecting seeds, taking cuttings, and eventually loading the ark with her own produce. The result is a splendid garden ark which not only gives everyone onboard plenty to eat, but once the rain has subsided, gives Mrs. Noah a head start in helping the world grow green and new.

When her husband begins herding all the animals in the world into the ark, two by two, Mrs. Noah decides to save the plants in the world from the flood. Noah and Mrs. Noah have a contemporary look, Noah with his wire-rimmed spectacles and an Abe Lincoln-ish mustache-less white beard, and Mrs. Noah in a monk-like brown dress and apron, and with both wearing straw hats with ribbon trim. The animals all appear to be smiling. ¿¿Oh, Noah,¿ she sighed. `I didn¿t think you¿d go this far. Are you really going to load the animals onto your ridiculous rescue ark?¿Noah simply nodded, the nod of someone who is very, very sure that what they are doing is right, however foolish it may seem.And Mrs. Noah got to thinking.If Noah really was right about a flood¿and if he really needed to save the animals¿THEN WHAT ABOUT HER VEGETABLE GARDEN?¿
