You already know about Noah.

Just wait until you read the animal's story. 

Thimblerig's Ark

Thimblerig is a little groundhog with big problems.  

He's a loner con-artist who seems to be losing his mojo; he's harassed at every turn by the thuggish wild dogs who run the forest; he’s started having vivid nightmares of apocalyptic floods; and worst of all - he keeps hallucinating that he’s seeing unicorns when everyone knows unicorns are only the stuff of legend.

But what one animal calls problems, Thimblerig calls opportunity.  His problems inspire him to come up with the ultimate con: convincing a group of gullible animals that a world-ending flood is coming, that the fabled unicorns have told him where the only safe place will be, and that only he can lead them to safety.

And all for a reasonable price, of course.

But when the flood really does come, Thimblerig has a choice to make: either he really does save the ones who have trusted him, or he loses everything.  And he discovers that his problems have only just begun. 

Thimblerig's Ark is a middle grade novel inspired by the writings of Richard Adams, C.S. Lewis, the book of Genesis, and an Irish pub song about why the unicorn missed out on Noah's Ark.  

Be on the lookout for Thimblerig's Ark 2: The Ark Heist, scheduled to be published soon.
