27. The Little Sailboat
First sentence: Captain Small has a sailboat. He keeps it anchored offshore.
Premise/plot: The Little Sailboat stars Captain Small; it was originally published in 1937. It gives readers a day in the life of Captain Small. He rows in a rowboat (twice) and sails in a sailboat. He fishes, naps, swims, and eats lunch. The text is super simple. The book packs a lot of information about boating.
My thoughts: I found this one to be a dull read. Tinker the dog is by far the most interesting part of the book. The illustrations are cute if you enjoy vintage Illustrations.
