Ferry Tail

Cover: 'Ferry Tail'

Staff Review: "Ferry Tail" by Katharine Kenah


Walter, the ferry dog loves his perfect job. He greets ferry-goers, fetches the captain’s morning newspaper, tastes the cook’s food, watches babies and barks at seagulls. The captain’s cat is the only one aboard he does not like. One day he doesn’t feel needed and decides to leave and try life on the island. This sweet, simple picture book will appeal to everyone, but especially to children who have either have been on a family vacation that included a ride on a ferry boat or dream of going.  

Audience: children | Genre: fiction, picture book, read-alouds
