This book is under-appreciated. All 4 of my children LOVE this book! My husband and I both enjoy reading it to them!

Sailaway Home celebrates the power of imagination. A little pig turns a pond and a garden into a world of adventure involving storms at seas, pirates and cowboys.

The story is beautifully illustrated in a colorful manner that captures on paper the balance between the mundane real world an the high adventures of his imagination.

The story itself is told with simplistic rhymes which make for easy reading for the parent and interesting listening for young children.

The verse and the wordplay keep our imaginations sailing, as do the dreamlike illustrations!
