Lively good humor is afloat—along with an armada of adventurous animals—in this silly seafaring tale.

A romp in the river with Yak in his kayak and Gnu in his canoe leads to a safari full of unusual nautical discoveries. A goat in a boat? A calf on a raft? A whole flotilla of whales and gorillas? No matter how many other strange sailors they come across, Yak and Gnu are certain there is no other beast quite like either of them. Climb aboard for a nonsensical voyage featuring an eclectic collection of embarked animals, awash in rhyme and tongue twisters perfect for reading aloud.

his is a picture book. It is fiction. People who like animals and counting numbers and who are three, four, or five years old would like it. Yak and Gnu are friends. Thinking that no one else can sail as well as them, they go on and on and meet more and more animals until a big ship comes. Everyone else they meet can sail a boat, too. They are upset because they think they are the only ones who could sail a boat, and their song is was only for themselves. Then they notice; “we are different, and everyone else is different, so we can still sing our song because we are us!” In the end they felt they could be themselves because they were different from everyone else because no one else had a kayak or canoe, and no one else was really best friends. Yak and Gnu are funny and I liked the illustrations, and there are a lot of tongue twisters. The best part of the book is when they are sailing by themselves. review by Aubrey L, Age 7, Greater NYC Mensa
