Book Description

"Greta Guzek's 'child's paint-box' renderings effortlessly convey some of the beauties and magic of this world of islands and boats and whales."

--Books in Canada

"Do you believe / in ferry tales / of seeing pods / of flying whales?" Robert Perry's simple four-line rhymes, paired with Greta Guzek's vibrant illustrations, take readers on a ferry ride along the magical British Columbia coastline. On the trip, young children will enjoy spotting seagulls, lighthouses, kayaks, tugboats, sailboats, whales and other coastal sights before pulling up at the dock and waving goodbye to the ferryboat. The original hardcover edition of The Ferryboat Ride has sold over 15,000 copies, and this new sturdy board book edition is certain to be just as popular with a new generation of young readers.
