FINALLY! A FAMILY SAILING BOOK that cracks the code of nautical terms through humorous cartoons and a cheeky glossary! Anyone who has ever sailed or cruised with kids aboard will relate to the cartoons and will certainly reminisce about their adventures on the water!

Captain Adorable (3 year old Lucy) and her stinky big brothers have their own ideas about what vacationing on the water is all about. Not everyone onboard agrees that the CAPTAIN is the one in charge of the SEA YA! Get ready for laughs when encountering what actually happens on boating vacations through Dave Alavoine's perceptive cartoons. All members of one's boating family will be able to relate, including moms, dads, kids, and grandparents. And when young readers encounter nautical words crafted within the cartoons, the fun will be in the challenge of deciphering them! Of course, a rather light-hearted, sassy glossary is also available, adding more chuckles to this fun read! I mean, seriously, everyone knows that a HEAD is a boat toilet - don't they?

Review - Who's the Captain? captures the funny, introspective look at a family vacationing together aboard a sailboat, at the mercy of the wind and waves. It's a solid dose of humorous reflection about the romance of sailing versus the relentless reality of sailing. Anyone who has sailed with family, (and even if they haven't), will love the book for what it teaches us all - working, laughing, exploring, and planning in pencil with a BIG eraser. - Karen Herage, Schooner Cove Yacht Club Past Commodore.
