BENNIE THE BOOM BOAT by Brian Common is the captivating story of a small boat on the coast of British Columbia. Not large enough to go out on the high seas to work with his Mom and Dad, Bennie needs to stay close to shore near his grandparents. One day, seeking an adventure and different scenery, Bennie ventures further out into the ocean than ever before, and soon finds that he is all alone, lost and terrified. Thanks to his friend, Greg the Grey Whale, Bennie soon finds himself back at the dock, safe and sound, and even a little wiser thanks to what he learned from the experience. A few days later, Bennie hears his father's voice uttering "Mayday" across the radio. Because the tide is out, Bennie's size means he is the only vessel that can make it out into the ocean to help the boats in trouble. Bennie is scared, but with encouragement from his parents, he keeps going and eventually saves the day. Full of important life lessons, BENNIE THE BOOM BOAT will surely delight readers young and old alike.
