A burst pipe causes a brief domestic flood while Maureen MacNally is babysitting for 4-year-old Alfie and his little sister Annie Rose. A subtle visual subplot paralleling the Noah story foreshadows and underscores the robust story. The fourth highly appealing, action-filled Alfie story once again involves his family and the MacNallys across the street. (Up to age 5)
