Product Description

A little boy made his own toy boat and he treasures it. His boat goes everywhere he goes, and the boy holds it tight floating in the lake by a little string. But one day when a storm rolls in, the boy loses his hold on the boat and the boat drifts off into the water, where it is forced to fight to remain floating in the big, rough waves, among the big boats. The little boat is sad and lonely and wonders if he will ever make it home. . . an adorable adventure that's appealing to young children and inspires imaginative toy play!

Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

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

"A resonant tale with wide appeal."--Publishers Weekly
