What's The Sailor Dog About

Publisher Summary

A classic Little Golden Book by Goodnight Moon author Margaret Wise Brown and beloved illustrator Garth Williams. Scuppers the Dog wants to be a sailor. He was born at sea and he wants nothing more than to return to water. Finally, after a long time, Scuppers gets the chance to go out into the deep blue ocean–but his ship gets wrecked! Oh no! But Scuppers won’t let that bother him. He fixes his boat and gets right back to it!
