This beautifully illustrated book is the story of the joys of traveling faraway places and the joy of returning home. It is based on a real ship and the travels it made. The illustrations in this book were adapted by Peter Spier from historical documents. This is a retired library book with all the usual library markings plus it has been rebound with the special library binding. A lovely addition to you child's library and a perfect bedtime story book. The book measures seven and a half by nine inches.
