Tower of Babel
When all the people in the world spoke one language, life was convenient but boring. So the townsfolk of Shinar decide to build a tower. As they reach the heavens, they proudly congratulate themselves on their achievement. Suddenly thunder and lightning strike, making the townsfolk unable to understand each other. A whimsical, irreverent retelling of the Bible story of the Tower of Babel.

“The rhythmical text moves the tale along at an enjoyable pace and creates a sense of fun. Childlike illustrations are painted in flat, bold colors across spreads that contain lots of amusing details. . . . For collections looking for a fresh version of an old story, this book fits the bill.”
