Ferryboat

Betsy Maestro, Author, Giulio Maestro, Illustrator Crowell $14 (30p) ISBN 978-0-690-04519-2
Many children in this country have never seen a ferryboat, much less experienced the thrill of riding on one. Author Betsy Maestro and artist Giulio often ride the Chester-Hadlyme Ferry near their home in Connecticut. This book is fashioned after that ferry, and their words and pictures are so completely involving that it's almost like being on the real thing. The author carefully explains the workings of the ferry and takes readers from shore to shore, lovingly describing the sights and sounds of the ride. ""The ferry doesn't have to turn around. Its front is the same as its back!'' The double-page spreads, with a deep blue river and lush tree-lined shores, are colorful and appealing. (37)
