Rain : Rain : Rain : Flood!

This week’s Illustration Friday word is Rain. I found this very interesting because I just completed the cover art for PONY WOMBAT AND THE SECOND ARK. Now if ever there was a story about rain, it was Noah’s Ark. Forty days and forty nights… that’s a lot of rain!

You can preview the book for free! (aren't I nice!) or you could buy a copy (aren't you nice!)

The Story:

Third grader Pony Wombat has the idea to recreate the story of Noah's Ark using his pet collection and a rubber raft. Pony pretends his backyard is the ocean while he waits for his pool to be filled.

When the neighborhood bully Morton shows up, he makes fun of Pony. That is until the backyard pool cracks and the surge sweeps everyone down the street in one giant wave.

The seemingly miraculous occurrence gives Morton the idea to start a club that recreates Bible stories. Unfortunately Morton’s flawed understanding of the Bible ends in some silly disasters.

It's up to Pony to stop Morton before things really get out of hand.

Buy a copy today! Come on, it’ll be fun!
