Description
When a young student begins to daydream in the middle of a geography lesson, his imagination carries him away on an adventure by boat, by train, by mule, and by yak. As he searches out each of the seven seas, he discovers a colorful and hilarious world that no teacher could have imagined. Bright, whimsical paintings from Bill Slavin and Esperan a Melo perfectly complement Ellen Jackson's humorous rhymed verse, and an informative section of facts and additional resources at the end of the book will encourage children to learn more about seas and oceans. The Seven Seas will take readers on an unforgettable, rollicking trek to the seven seas and beyond.
