Description

A charmingly funny read-aloud that asks an important question: "Who sank the boat?" Beside the sea, there once lived a cow, a donkey, a sheep, a pig, and a tiny little mouse. They were good friends, and one warm, sunny morning, for no particular reason, they decided to go for a row in the bay. Do you know who sank the boat? "The idea is funny, the pictures are splendid, and the easy text is just right for the very young."--The New Yorker "A bright, brisk tale, simply told, illustrated by cheerful, comical pictures."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Booksshow more
