"Jack's mother and father both worked in the city," the reader is told, "so Jack spent summers with his grandfather, a sea captain, in his house by the ocean. Jack loved it there."
And as the story unfolds, we see exactly why Jack loves his summers with his grandfather so much.
The blend of pictures and written storyline perfectly capture the stormy sea and the little house, its interior so like a boat, against whose windows the sea surges and the waves beat. This is the stuff dreams are made of and that is exactly what the story successfully explores, merging fantasty and reality. Is this a house or is it a boat? What journeys can it take? Ultimately, how far can the imagination travel?
A lovely story told through words and pictures to be enjoyed time and time again.
I enjoyed the book because you never know what will happen next and you can't stop reading it. It is a good book and definitely worth buying. I think this story is suitable for children between seven and ten years old. They would love this inspiring story.
