All aboard the ship that Jack built for a rollicking picture book adventure.

Jack’s ship has set sail with a precious cargo of gold in the hold, but a whole host of thieves are out to snatch it from under his nose. From the squid that opens the lid and the seal that tries to steal, to the cat and the rat and the whale with its splashy tail, Jack really has his hands full.

With a joyful, rhyming text full of super-catchy repeated lines, this cumulative tale builds and builds to an epic crescendo. Told by Peter Millett and brought to life by Sam Caldwell, bestselling illustrator of Buster Books’ popular picture book Sheldon’s New Shell, this picture book voyage is one readers will want to take again and again.

Sample content:

This is the gull that flew from the hull
And nabbed the crab that sneakily grabbed
The gold from the seal that jumped up to steal
The loot from the whale that splashed its tail…
…That stole the gold that lay in the hold
Of the ship that Jack built.
