Overview

A little boy has a toy boat that he made out of a can, a cork, a yellow pencil, and some white cloth. The boy and his boat are inseparable . . . until the day the wind pushes the boat out into the wide lake, and the little boat must face fierce waves, a grumpy ferry, a sassy schooner, and a growling speed boat if he is to find his way home. From Randall de Seve and bestselling artist Loren Long, creator of the Otis series and illustrator of The Little Engine That Could, comes a child-friendly adventure sure to inspire imaginative toy play.

Praise for TOY BOAT

* “The streamlined text is straightforward, letting the amazing art do much of the work. Long’s acrylic, hyperrealistic pictures, awash with many shades of blue, are so substantial they seem to be molded from clay, and his expansive double-page spreads effectively convey the perspectives and differences in the size between the full-size boats and the boy’s beloved toy. A harmonious ending brings the story full circle. With plenty of buoyant charm and imaginative artwork, this contemporary Little Toot has an abundance of child appeal.”–Booklist, starred review
