The Real Boat

(4) K-3 Translated by Olga Varshaver. Illustrated by Victoria Semykina. After a paper boat floating in a pond overhears a duck reminiscing about the ocean, it sails off to find the sea, interacting with various watercrafts along the way. Just as the journey is a long haul for the paper boat, the story (translated from the Russian) is a lengthy haul for the reader, although the dominantly blue mixed-media art couldn't be more scenic.
