PR Newswire

PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- BOATS ON THE BAY
Written by Jeanne Walker Harvey & Illustrated by Grady McFerrin

A houseboat rocks by a dock. A fishing boat slogs through the fog. A ferry carries passengers. A sailboat sets sail . . . Follow all the boats that rock and slog and sail on the bay from daybreak to night!

This beautifully rendered, large-format picture book is about all of the boats found on a busy bay, buoyed by simple, spare, and lyrical text. Inspired by the San Francisco Bay but with universal appeal, the book follows a day-in-the-life of a bustling bay, and features a spectacular double-spread gatefold finale showing a boat parade and fireworks glowing against a city backdrop.
