The Sailor Dog by Margaret Wise Brown

Scuppers the Dog wants to be a sailor. He was born at sea and he wants nothing more than to return to water. Finally, after a long time, Scuppers gets the chance to go out into the deep blue ocean—but his ship gets wrecked! Oh no! But Scuppers won’t let that bother him. He fixes his boat and gets right back to it!

How can a Little Golden Book that was written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Garth Williams be anything less than perfect? Margaret Wise Brown wrote poetry -- not the forced rhythm, attempted rhyming couplets (or quatrains) that so often results in doggerel poetry -- not necessarily with a rhyme at all, but it was poetry none-the-less.  Her writing, for the most part, should be read out loud and savored. I grew up with Garth Williams' illustrations.  From the time I was about six, we had all the "Little House" books in our house, and I devoured them.  His work shaped the way I thought about illustrations.

This book has it all! A dog! A ship! A treasure! A toolbox! Fishing! And a song at the end! Scuppers gets shipwrecked and has to repair his boat. Great problem solving!
