A box is never just a box when you have a vivid imagination and a couple stuffed animal friends to join you on a fantastic ocean voyage.

I have a box,
I want a boat.

With nothing but spare text and a bright imagination, I Want a Boat! follows a girl as she finds a way to transform a plain old box in an ordinary room into a magical sailboat, complete with a rudder, sail, and anchor. She and her stuffed-animal friends take to the high seas, encounter raging storms, and make it to dry land, just in time for supper.

Award-winning author Liz Garton Scanlon's sprightly text and candy-colored, kid-friendly illustrations by Kevan Atteberry (Ghost Cat, Dear Beast) make this a perfect read-aloud for the youngest child.

Liz Garton Scanlon is the author of many picture books for young readers including the New York Times bestseller and Caldecott Honor book All the World, illustrated by Marla Frazee.

Kevan Atteberry has written and illustrated several books for children, including Ghost Cat, which Publishers Weekly called "A comforting story of memory, longing, and hope." He is also the illustrator of the middle-grade series Dear Beast, by Dori Hillestad Butler, Tickle Monster, and Boogie Monster. He lives in the Seattle area.
