Willy, his stuffed monkey Bobo, and Earl the cat are back for more adventure in this lively follow-up to I Must Have Bobo! and I’ll Save You, Bobo! Willy is ready to do some outdoor exploring, but after he conscripts Bobo into service as a sailor, placing him in a bucket in a river, matters get out of hand. Willy’s curiosity and exuberance continue to delight and amuse, along with the off-kilter dynamics among the three characters. All eyes will be on surly Earl, who breaks with type and rescues Bobo, only to get drenched for his efforts. Ages 3–6. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Sept.)
