School Library Journal
PreS-- An excited young boy and his teddy set out in aunt and uncle's motorized sailboat on a three-day trip from river to sea to meet his vacationing family at the cape. (``See you, see you, see you by the sea.'') From the freshness of new adventure--sailing under bridges, swimming off the deck, early sunrise, passing freighters and tugs--to the sudden menace of an afternoon squall, life on a boat is a constantly changing experience. Then, it's good to be back with the family once more. The atmosphere of the eastern seacoast is strong in the soft pastels and muted shades of Krupinski's double-page scenes--clear sky blues, sunset pinks, and stormy greens and mauves. The text rolls like the sea in this gentle tale of adventure with its feeling of family closeness.-- Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
