Did you know that nothing is called the same on a boat as it is on land? 

More details

When sailing with Grandpa something magical always happens ...You can’t sail without wind. Grandpa’s sailboat is called a sloop and has two sails. It also has a little engine just in case there is no wind. The big sail is called the main sail and the smaller sail is called the jib. When it is very windy the boat can sail with just the jib, so it does not tip to the side too much. It’s really funny; there is a boat language.

If the story written by Michele Lodge is charming and full of discoveries and excitement, the watercolors illustrating the text and created by Katrina Vanderlip are breathtaking.

Katrina is both an artist and art conservator who has worked for private collectors and museums, including the Musee du Louvre or The National Gallery.

Children and parents will equally enjoy the sweet story and will delight with the quality of the illustration accompanying the text.
