Publisher's Description

Ahoy, mateys! Get on board!

Boats and the need for them have been around for thousands of years. Reed boats might have been the first boat ever to be built. The Vikings built wooden ships that were strong and ornate. And now boats like an Aircraft Carrier house 6,000 people and can carry over 100 planes. In Jerry Pallotta's newest book we get to see an entire alphabet of floating wonders.

David Biedrzycki has provided dramatic settings for a variety of boats and captures the mood of each body of water. In one he paints a calm lake where a red canoe glides across the water and in another the stormy swells of an angry ocean tossing a three-masted Xebec. The facts about each boat are sprinkled with traditional Pallotta humor.

Editorial Reviews

Alphabet books are common enough, but here's one for children with a nautical turn of mind. The Boat Alphabet Book covers the waterfront with neat capsule descriptions and attractive color illustrations of each craft. Pallotta cleverly manages to come up with boats even for such tough letters as U (Umiak) and X (Xebec). If you don't believe him, look them up—I did. Still one could have wished for a few more commonplace examples, like A for Ark or R for Rowboat.
