I have never forgotten my first trip to the Seattle waterfront and onto a ferry with my grandmother. The wonder of standing on the deck of a boat for the first time, viewing islands, sun-dappled water and all different kinds of boats was awe-inspiring for a small child. P.S. Boats, Around Puget Sound is a celebration of the sights and sounds of that first trip. I wanted to create a book that would reflect the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with a natural curiosity of just one of its many elements.

P.S. Boats Children's Book

Excerpt - English

“Ferry boat, ferry boat,
Glide into dock.
I’m late for my ferry,
Just look at the clock!

Ferry man, ferry girl,
Where do we go?”
“This way, this lane,
And park just so.”

Excerpt - Spanish

-El transbordador
se acerca; entra al dique.
-¡Llego tarde, espolique!
¡Mira el reloj!

-¡Barquerito!, ¡barquerita!,
¿por dónde debemos ir?
-¡Sigan esta vía, ese carril.
¡Estacionen justo allí!
