Product Details

Praise

Striking. . . McClure uses the language of the sea lyrically (“Old Wood Boat gains speed with the ebb/ and rides the swells with ease”), evoking an unforgettable sense of freedom yielded by wind, salt air, and spray.

—Publishers Weekly

Beautiful prose (“scraps from the past hidden in vines”) capture the heart of the story. The stunning paper-cut illustrations stand out with their striking images and intricate details. McClure has written a gorgeous homage of sailing and the sea. . . . Repeat readings will be demanded; children will want to take a closer look at the pictures.
—School Library Journal

This evocative picture book conveys the sights and sounds of sailing through descriptive text and detailed cut-paper illustrations. . . . . The movement of the water, wind, and sails is captured in the flowing illustrations. Changing perspectives give the story visual drama.
—Booklist

‘Old Wood Boat’ is that magical combination of a captivating story and stunning illustration that makes it a book you’ll be happy to read to a young listener over and over again . . . . Some books are so delightful that you find a reader for them. ‘Old Wood Boat’ is one that will have you looking for a young sailor to give it to, and they’ll thank you for it 20 years from now.
—Sailing Magazine
