Young Milo and his bear Millie set out on an imaginary voyage in a paper boat in this bath time tale for prereaders by the author of The Little Zebra Who Lost Her Stripes. Navigating the tub, these friends pass a city guarded by frogs, and later are rescued from a storm by a whale, whose waterspout lifts them into the air. When they encounter a swirling whirlpool, however, it just means the tub's plug has been pulled, and it's time for Milo and Millie to get out, towel off, and snuggle into bed. Australian illustrator Jedda Robaard uses a collaged photo of a paper boat to add a realistic touch to her charming, simplified watercolor and pencil illustrations, and in the back of the book she provides instructions for folding a bathtub boat of your own.
