“Perfect for storytime and one-on-one sharing.” —School Library Journal
Mighty Tug may be the smallest boat in the busy harbor, but he is also the mightiest in this timeless picture book from the author of the Katy Duck and Biscuit series.
Around the gleaming channel, where the water’s deep and wide, tall ships stretch their sails and the ever so brave mighty tug leads the way across the waves. To the rescue in the busy, busy harbor, little tug saves the day every time. Mighty tug is the smallest, strongest, and bravest boat of all.

"Children’s yearning to be out in the world, performing useful, even daring deeds, finds expression in a host of books where little vehicles compete with larger machines.... illustrations are filled with movement and charming details that will completely win readers over while they follow Mighty Tug through a busy day in New York Harbor... As night falls, Mighty Tug sends out a lullaby-like song to the harbor, wishing it sweet dreams and a busy tomorrow." — Booklist
