The paperback version of the quirky and beautiful Cork on the Ocean. An uplifting journey of discovery and friendship, Cork on the Ocean is the first tale in the 'Cork Voyages' trilogy. Beautifully illustrated and produced, this wonderful picture book, told in clever rhyme, follows the adventures of a plucky little cork as it encounters life upon the open sea. Praise for CORK ON THE OCEAN: With delightful rhyme and enchanted drawings, this journey of discovery takes the reader on a lovely trip across the oceans as Cork meets new friends and in turn finds out about itself a truly memorable and beautiful children's story that will enchant kids and adults alike." Richard Taylor - WETA Workshop "Rich with metaphor, CORK is a touching tale of camaraderie, taking the good with the bad, and about the voyage one makes before finding one's soul-mate. Told in clever rhyming verse (somewhat Seuss-like), this is a beautifully produced New Zealand book with unique illustrations and an utterly charming storyline: certainly a book to be treasured. 5 Stars."
