about this item

Fortified with a bountiful basket of goodies from her mother, little Marie meets adventures, but not quite of the exotic type she’d imagined. She is fearless and resourceful. Undaunted by a frustrating night on a tiny desert island, she captains her little sloop successfully back home to a happy surprise. Written in clever, well-crafted, natural verse and profusely illustrated with delightful pictures, this is definitely a read-aloud book. It’s a real charmer for any young child. The author avoids the impoverished vocabulary so commonly seen in children’s books. The young reader will learn a few new words (and maybe just a pinch about sailing). The voyage through Sailor Marie's thirty-six pages takes less than fifteen minutes—a nice length for a bed-time story. It’s recommended for ages five to eight (but it’s not illegal to read it to any adult sweet-heart who retains a fondness for those really good children’s books).
