Synopsis

And what will we spy in the sky so high? Now that our intrepid explorers are finished their grand sailing adventure (We'll All Go Sailing, 2001), they are ready to take off again in this attention-grabbing sequel. This time the three friends take to the sky and count whatever they see, from helicopters to bats and everything in between. And when they are done, they'll tell the story of their exciting trip as they invite everyone along on the next ride. Another brilliant picture book for the primary audience. Young toddlers will love the colours and simple, recognizable images. Easy gatefolds invite little ones to open up each page. And older preschoolers will count along as the sky gets more and more crowded with airborne delights. Maggee Spicer and Richard Thompson's spirited text won't have to be read many times before it's memorized. Artist Kim La Fave repeats his wildly colourful primary style, which debuted in We'll All Go Sailing and earned him a nomination for the Governor General's Literary Award for Children's Literature, Illustration. This multipurpose book will once again appeal to a wide range: from ready-to-talk to ready-for-school.
