A Sea-Wishing Day

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton. A boy in his backyard wishes "so hard / To sail the sea / That the sea / Sailed right to me!" He and his dog set off, running into rogue waves, pirates, mermaids, and other exotic creatures. The lilting, rhythmic text is reminiscent of lyric ballads, while watery gouache illustrations conjure up the magic of an ocean adventure.
