Jack's New Boatby Sarah McMenemy, Sarah McMenemy (Illustrator)
When Jack goes to the beach to stay with his sailor uncle, he finds a wonderful surprise waiting for him. Uncle Jim has made him his very own toy boat! Jack can't wait/b>
With a bold summer palette and an enticingly retro feel, the creator of WAGGLE captures the familiar pang of losing a favorite toy — and the pleasure of finding a sympathetic companion.
When Jack goes to the beach to stay with his sailor uncle, he finds a wonderful surprise waiting for him. Uncle Jim has made him his very own toy boat! Jack can't wait to sail it on the ocean, but there’s a big storm coming, and as the rain pours down and the waves crash, he finds himself bursting with impatience. At last the rain stops, and Jack can't wait another minute. "Not too far!" he calls to the bobbing boat, but then — oh no! Will Jack ever see his red boat again?
