This inventive and beautifully produced pop-up book follows a couple and their small dog as they journey across the sea in a tiny sailing boat, encountering extraordinary boats from all around the world as they go. Gerard Lo Monaco is one of the world's finest paper engineers, and this is reflected in the rich detail of the pop-up boats. The five Pantone colours give the book a contemporary feel with a touch of nostalgia that will appeal to children and adults alike.
