Read full description of the books The Sailor Dog (Little Golden Storybook):
The Sailor Dog
This book has it all - travel, adventure, life choices, being decisive, being resourceful, transport options, shipwreck, buried treasure, fashion statements, sartorial splendour, boats, the high seas, ship repairing, building a beach house. And Scuppers The Sailor Dog has his own song to sing at the end.
All this packed into 24 pages. This is the skill of writing for young kids - not as easy as it looks.
Through the story there it has, woven rhythmic word reinforcement that repeats words, essential and valuable for children to learn to read and learn to love reading. Get 'em while they're young, I say. Are children's books the most important books of all? There's a question to think about.
I love this book. I've read it a gazillion times to my kids, now all grown up.
The Sailor Dog is a picture book. With picture books the pictures are as important as, and integral to the story. The pictures, which are in pen and ink and watercolour are illustrated by Garth Williams.
Scuppers is the ultimate Salty Dog!
My youngest son had a pet duck, and Indian Runner, which he names Scuppers. We had Scuppers for 8 years before he was taken by a fox.
Read information about the authorMargaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.
Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading.
She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them.
She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper.
Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.
