What a stunning story of friendship, I am sure you can’t read this book without having a big smile on your face by the end. The illustrations are beautiful, full of lovely details which makes you want spend time looking at each page. At the end of the book there are instructions on how to make your own paper boat.

We are big fans of David Litchfield, we love “The bear and the piano”, check out my post about it here.

Highly recommended!

Happy reading! x
