Product description

A boy and a bear go to sea, equipped with a suitcase, a comic book and a ukulele. They are only travelling a short distance and it really shouldn’t take long. But their journey doesn’t quite go to plan… Faced with turbulent storms, a terrifying sea monster and the rank remains of a horrifying sandwich, can these unlikely heroes withstand the violent lashings of the salty waves? Will their trusty vessel stay afloat? And will anyone ever answer their message in a bottle? Told in simple text and pictures, this is an offbeat and tender story of the power of friendship, and of how – if you look hard enough – hope can always be found.

“One of my favourite books of the year.” John Boyne
