The Maggie B.

Before she goes to bed, Margaret wishes on the North Star for an adventure on a special ship -- named for her -- and someone special for company. Soon, she’s sailing the waves on the Maggie B., with her baby brother James along for the adventure! There are exciting things to go and new things to see, and even when a late afternoon thunderstorm churns the waves, Margaret knows just how to comfort James, playing her fiddle until he’s soothed to sleep.

This classic picture book ode to imagination and a sister's love is back in print, ready for a new generations of children to enjoy.

"The wondrous full-color paintings and sensitive brush drawings are filled with imaginative detail." -- Booklist
