Praise For Salty Dog

“Gloria Rand's first book is based on a true story, and it moves along quickly and succinctly; vibrant watercolor illustrations show Salty for the sporty hero he is.” —Publishers Weekly

“Reflected with sparkling clarity in Rand's realistic illustrations, the boat's construction fascinatingly takes shape with each turn of the page....It offers a pleasing nautical twist on the theme of boy-dog companionship.” —Booklist
