Junior Sailor:(3 Books!) The Boat Who Wouldn't Float, Davy's Dream and Voyage of the Frog
Here's a great way to introduce your love of small boats and adventure to your kids, grand kids, nephews and nieces. This 3-pack of books includes:
1. Voyage of the Frog by Gary Paulsen
A gripping survival tale begins when David's favorite uncle dies after asking David to scatter his ashes at sea. David sails his uncle's small boat without checking weather reports, and a sudden storm creates disaster. Low on food, becalmed, attacked by a shark, and escorted by killer whales, David hangs on against the odds. A harrowing, uplifting adventure short enough for reluctant readers.
2. The Boat Who Wouldn't Float
Happy Adventure was a schooner with one fatal flaw. It leaked like a sieve. So why would anyone repeatedly expose himself and his friends to the elements of the North Atlantic in a treacherous, stubborn, uncomfortable, unfloatable boat which at last count, has sunk eight times? Any explanation of this appalling narative seems outrageously unlikely. But the story is true. All too true. And it's decidedly the funniest story yet from Farley Mowat, whose books have sold over a million and a half copies in this country alone.
3. Davy's Dream
A young boy's sailing adventures with orcas in the wild Pacific Northwest. Wonderful color illustrations. A true delight.
