KIRKUS REVIEW

 When the greedy elephants get into the food, they gain so much weight that--huddled together on one side--they threaten to upset the Ark. The Lord gives Noah some extraordinary advice: ``Tickle the hyena...Trust me.'' Tickled with a feather, the laughing hyena lurches into the lion, starting a chain reaction that ends after the elephants have moved safely to opposite ends of the crowded Ark. Ludwig captures the fun of this comical tale in energetic line, bright colors, and a briskly told narrative- -just right for the picture book hour. (Folklore/Picture book. 4- 8)
