Product Details


“All sails are set and pulling in this imaginative matchup of words and pictures.Kirkus Reviews

“In I Want a Boat! dynamic illustrations and tightly focused prose combine for a boatload of high-seas fun.”—BookPage

“Scanlon has written a wonderful read-aloud picture book for imaginative and adventurous readers.”—Booklist

“Watercolor, acrylic, and digital illustrations are vividly colored and absolutely adorable. . . . Little ones will connect with and be inspired by the girl’s passion for adventure as she sails on the wild, rollicking sea. The ending lends itself to imaginative free play.”—School Library Journal

“Atteberry (Ghost Cat) creates a toy-box world of soft forms, scribble-shadowed waves, and swirling breezes. . . . The draw of the story is the young protagonist’s ability to brings needs to life via imagination—power that Scanlon emphasizes with the punch of repeating, easily memorized prose.”—Publishers Weekly
