About the Author
Praise For Naamah and the Ark at Night…
Lovely and lyrical...Bartoletti and Meade take a most familiar story and make it breathtakingly new.
—Booklist (starred review)
Sunlit figures with a peaceful absence of detail contrast with quietly dramatic, near-black silhouettes. Affection between pairs warms many a scene.
—The Horn Book (starred review)
The text has a lovely, soothing effect, with the repeated ending words and a lilting cadence that effectively suggests a comforting lullaby. Meade's watercolor collage illustrations match the dramatic pacing of the text with varied perspectives and humorous views of the sleeping (or prowling) animals. . . . This captivating interpretation creates a remarkable partner for Noah, who uses her special talent in a memorable way.
