Description

Fun and adventure from Caldecott Medal winner Richard Egielski

Jack's best toy pal is Captain Sky Blue, a pilot. Sky speaks in Pilot Talk ("Roger! Wilco!").

After a thunderstorm separates Sky and his buddy ("Mayday!"), Sky is abducted by a whale, then left alone to wander a frigid ocean floor until he chances upon a very special place, a place where he's been before ("Now I'm spooled up!").

Captain Sky Blue thinks he has finally found an easy way home, but first he must face a desperate situation--a challenge that puts his pilot skills to the test!
