Following a fishing boat that leaves port in the morning and returns in the afternoon, this visual feast of a book illustrates many of the vessels to be seen in a typical harbour. From freighters being loaded with cargo, lifeboats, a ferry, speed boats, rowing boats and yachts, to an ocean liner, this is a book that celebrates the variety and beauty of boats and ships of every kind. Accompanied by a rhyming and rhythmic text that will delight the youngest readers, this is a perfect book for adults and young children to share. It is one that is sure to inspire a fascination with the sea and ships of all sizes. Following the author/illustrator's Rattle and Rap about a train journey, and On the Road and Life of a Car, this further establishes Susan Steggall as a striking picture book talent.
Follow the fishing boat as it leaves
the dock in the morning. See cargo boats being loaded,
the tourist boat filling up with people, tug boats bringing
a tanker in, lifeboats speeding to a rescue, and many others.
And in the evening see the fish being unloaded for tea.
This vibrant picture book, with its rhythmic text, is full of life and detail.
