Old Wood Boat

by Nikki McClure tells the story of a boat’s transformation from beached to adventure-worthy, told from the boat’s point of view. An old boat sits in the yard, her mast broken and thickets of blackberries growing across her decks. But, she remembers the sea voyages she once took and hopes to feel the wind in her sails again. One day, a new family takes her home and dust and polishes and mends to make her seaworthy once more. McClure’s poetic words and gorgeous blue-green illustrations bring the joy of sailing and the sea to life.
