" I picked this book up solely because the illustrations are breathtaking. The story is sweet and well done. Some messages include: Adventure can be fun, keep positive people close, leave negative ones behind, and of course there's no place like home. " said.

" A little boy has a toy boat that he absolutely adores (even to the extent of sleeping with it). One day he has the boat out on the lake and the string gets pulled out of the little boy's hand and the boat is at last free to explore the lake with the other big boats. It turns into a scary adventure, but in the end the toy boat finds his boy.Really engaging illustrations. " said.

" A curious little book. The illustrations are rich and the personal touch with boats having eyes are wonderful. A sad story of many not helping the little boat and only one who understands his loneliness and being the little guy. For the age group this targets, their not going to see that message adult readers do. A lovely read, recommended! " said.

" This book is amazing. At our latest visit-our local librarian recommended it to me for my son. The illustrations are stunning and the story of a toy boat's "journey home" hit with my son who has a closeness to certain toys of his own. We have read it at least 3 times a day for four days. GET IT FOR XMAS!!! " said.

" I don't often give 5 stars to books of any kind. This book has such a sweet story about a little boy and his toy boat he makes out of random "parts". It ends up sailing away at the beginning of the book, then sails back at the end. I loved the story a mommy, especially of a mother of little boys, but the illustrations are also gorgeous. This one is a keeper! " said.

" Cute book. My 3 year old enjoyed it quite a bit. The boy never lets the boat's string go. The boat would like to be let go. Finally, a storm blows the boat out of the boy's hand. Eventually, they reunite and the boy doesn't hold the boat back so much, but the boat always comes back. Nice moral and the illustrations are good too. " said.

" Henry loves this one. He studies the makings of the boat (spool of thread, stick, can) on the endpapers before reading it each time. My only issue is, why does the mom have to be the reason the boy drops the string and the boat is lost in the first place? Nice going, Mom. I change the text when I read it so the mom isn't such the bad guy. Geez. " said.

" This book was a really sweet story about a boy who loses his boat and gets it back again. It only got a three from me because although the writing was wonderful the illustrations didn't seem to do the story justice. I'm not exactly sure what was wrong with them, they just didn't work for me....still a cute book. " said.
