Product Information

"In lilting rhymes and lush, jewel-toned illustrations, Laden and Castrillon deliver an imaginative adventure through stormy seas.... Castrillon's beautifully surreal artwork is captivating. Each scene is full of imaginative sea creatures, crashing waves, blue-green tendrils of rain, and moonlit skies, all rendered in swirling organic shapes and lines and a dense palette of saturated tones....the artwork is so gorgeous, and the wind-down conclusion, wherein the travelers are welcomed home, might make this a nice pick for bedtime. " - Booklist -- Booklist Online * Dec 12, 2017 * "The team behind If I Had a Little Dream imagines a journey of ocean exploration as a boy and giraffe set off in a small wooden boat. ...Castrillon's images convey an underlying tranquility that carries readers along with the explorers. It's a voyage they'll want to take again. " -- Publishers Weekly -- Publishers Weekly * November 13, 2017 * "A gentle story of calm courage and of quiet, trusting perseverance that will comfort readers in their anxious times." -- Kirkus -- Kirkus Reviews * October 15, 2017 *
