Most people know the biblical story of Noah and his ark, and how he saved a bunch of animals from a huge flood. However, not many people know the story of what happened to the other animals that were unexpectedly left behind in the stormy weather.
Among them were Mrs. Ozzy, an Ostrich of action! A well-meaning Elephant named, Elsie. A philosophizing Rat named Matt. An anxious Giraffe named, Gerald. Froggy, the hypochondriac Frog. Peggy the Parrot, and Bonzo the hungry Bear!
As the skies darkened this band of loners watched Noah’s Ark sail away, realized their need to come together and build another Ark with room for everyone, big or small! Noah’s Ark II!
