The Book Boat's in

Foreword Review — Spring 2013

Born on a remote farm in the 1800s, Jesse lives for the floating library-cum-bookstore he visits with his father by horse-drawn carriage. The object of his affection is Swiss Family Robinson, but he can’t afford the twenty cents it costs. Hard work and ingenuity eventually pay off, with a few lessons learned along the way. A refreshingly modest story. Ages six to ten.
