A novel by

 
W.J. Corbett's won the Whitbread Prize with his first book and has since gone on to write a number of other popular titles for children. The Ark of the People is essentially a voyage of imagination and adventure into the unknown.

The "People" have, over the years, formed into different clans, most of which are peace- loving--but not all. When Humans flood their valley, the gentle Willow Clan abandon their tree home and take to an oak-bough adrift on the raging tide. This is the story of their makeshift ark and their animal companions, the scout Magpie, brave Sedge the water-vole, the quarrelsome squirrels and the anxious badgers, as they try to save their valley.

Their travels not only take them into the unknown but also put their peace loving qualities to the test when they take aboard the Ark their rivals, the Nightshade Clan, who loved nothing better than to make life difficult for their gentler cousins. This imaginative story would appeal to children over the age of eight and would make an excellent read- aloud book.
