Booktrust - Book of the Day

"The story masterfully challenges a reader to think about ones personal circumstances. It nudges, rather than pushing readers to look around their environment, and use whatever limited or abundant resources to build a world fit for all."

"An alternative approach to the story of Noah in which Mrs Noah is foregrounded and magical beasts survived the flood. Mayhew's colourful, naive images using collage show the celebratory garden she makes, filling it with love for her family."

"Mrs Noah's Garden is joyous and colourful and inspired...It's a real treasure of a book."

"A wonderful celebration of the joys of planting and growing, I can see it being used to seed discussions around how you might create a garden – in school or at home.  Plus, as the publisher points out, it provides a positive way of encouraging discussion around migrants and refugees – as Mrs Noah and her family build a new home in a foreign land. I can see this becoming a firm favourite in classrooms all over the country."

"With themes of fresh beginnings, nature's bounties and enjoying the safety of one's abode and its surroundings, (and there's new life too), Jackie Morris's beautifully crafted fable has a magical feel to it. Alive with magic too, are James Mayhew's fantastical illustrations. Using a mix of collage, paint and print techniques he makes many of them absolutely dance on the page."

"On the surface, this is a book about the creation of a garden, but woven through are themes of diversity and inclusion, hope and migration, the value and richness of creation, new beginnings and an environmental message about the interdependence of living things."

"An exquisitely hopeful account of what might have happened when the ark touched land. Mayhew's glorious collage artwork combines with Morris's restrained text to show how bare rock and sparse vegetation can become a flourishing garden, nurturing all kinds of life."

"Picture-book lovers will delight in the gentle, transformative hopefulness of Mrs Noah’s Garden (Otter-Barry Books). Here the quiet words of Jackie Morris (the illustrator of The Lost Words) are interwoven with riotous collaged illustrations from James Mayhew. Sitting on a mountain-top, under a sky filled with wave-like clouds, surrounded by boulders, Mrs Noah begins the process of adapting to a new way of living, after the flood. Amid the small remnants of life left when the water subsided – tenacious shrubs, “yew trees … ancient and tall” – and with the help of her children, Mrs Noah begins to plant a new garden. Counterpointing the elegant, just-enough restraint of the words, Mayhew’s illustrations are tender and joyful. A rainbow of paper shapes, seeming to lift off the page with the lightness of origami, or wrap and drape with the warmth of a well-loved quilt cradling a new baby, make the fingers tingle while they turn the pages."

"We have been waiting with eager anticipation for the second instalment of Mrs Noah's adventures for a long time. And what a treat it is - perhaps even surpassing the first one. As with the best picture books, the carefully chosen words and rich illustrations work together to convey the simple narrative, providing spaces for the reader to linger, speculate, enjoy and interpret the multilayered meaning."

"What an absolute treat this book is. Following on from its predecessor Mrs Noah's Pockets, it continues the story of warm, earthy, practical, and creative Mrs Noah....a work of love."
