Flying fish, giant octopuses, mermaids . . . Grandpa Jack has seen it all. He's sailed all the oceans of the world, and he has a host of stories to tell about his adventures - and a tattoo for each of them. So when a customer at Grandpa Jack's diner asks about one of his tattoos, Chloe's grandpa delivers a whale of a tale.
With rip-roaring ink-and-watercolor pictures, Mark Foreman's American debut is one swashbuckling good story readers won't soon forget.
"A whimsical, action-packed debut, filled with kid-friendly ink-and-watercolor pictures." —Booklist "Children will relish this amusing tall tale and delight in its visual elements." —School Library Journal
