Frank Viva’s illustrations made this book one that I wanted to read again.
Simple, tonal and muted, they drew me in and kept me there. When I learned that Frank had taken a similar trip on a research vessel, I dove back in and read it again.
Younger readers will pour over each page looking at the tiny details of this heartwarming story.
Everything about the book speaks of good design too. I especially like the look and feel of the paper and the jacket free cover. Oh, and the story is fun too! I’m immediately adding all of Frank Viva’s books to my to be purchased list!
