Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This is a quietly charming story with evocative illustrations.

I m Captain Commander! Small Pig said.

Aye-Aye, Captain Small Pig! yawned Old Goat. You are in charge of this boat!

But Small Pig soon tires of rowing and falls asleep, and before they know it, the boat is drifting across the lake, and grumpy Turkey is in for a soaking!

Martin Waddell, award-winning author of Can t You Sleep, Little Bear? perfectly captures the magic of a day out.
