The boy is sad as his boat goes bobbing away down the river - but what marvellous adventures it has! The rhyming text swishes and swirls through the pictures as the boat travels through stream, lake right down to the sea, having adventures all along the way. Battered and bruised, nonetheless there is a happy surprise at the end. The text is perfectly complemented by the pictures, which reflect the mood of each stage of the journey and the book is a lovely introduction to the world of rivers."
