Maya and Filippo introduce young readers to Seattle, Washington. They are brother and sister that travel the world on a cruise ship that their father is the captain of. The story lends itself to teaching emergent readers how to retell a story with time order words. Each scene change in the book is connected to a straightforward event helping students remember the story. Rutkowska carefully blends fiction and nonfiction together making her books great mentor texts for students to add informational text to the fiction and personal narratives they write. The story is followed up with a six question comprehension quiz and additional facts about Seattle. Finally the illustrations have a child-like drawing feel that students can use as a model for illustrating their personal stories. 4 stars
