PreS-K-Two children build a boat, picnic, find a treasure map and sail to a pirates' island. They get chased by pirates and saved by a whale, and end up back at their beach. Once there, they decide to build a home out of the boat and stay forever. The simple rhyming text is illustrated with cheerful cartoons predominated by sea green and blue watercolor washes-the whole effectively conjuring up seaside memories. There are plenty of picture books on the beach and ocean, etc., and this one is not unique, but it has a nice feel about it. A satisfying imaginative adventure, perfect for summer storytimes.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
