Description
Down by the docks, Old Tregarn regales the younger cat Jim with tales from his seafaring days, in this book for readers 4 to 8 by Toby Forward. Excited by the chance to have an adventure, Jim persuades Old Tregarn to join him as he sneaks aboard a ship that is embarking. Contending with seasickness, huge waves, rats, and an unseaworthy vessel, Jim has more adventure than he wants—until he gets home and finds an audience for his own tale. With their deftly rendered textures and precise details, Ruth Brown's painted illustrations have a classic appeal.

"Forward writes smoothly, combining natural-sounding dialogue with evocative sensory details of life aboard a wooden sailing ship. Brown ... contributes a series of paintings that bring the story's characters and settings to life on the page. A good change of pace from the usual picture-book fare."—Booklist
