Book description: When Emily and her friend Bara Seal sneak away from home on a rainy day, searching for fish, they have no idea that they’re about to embark on a whirlwind, worldwide tour. Thanks to a dancing cat, kind strangers, and the magic of poetry, they return safely home. Along the way, author Thomas Beal treats his readers to a wealth of delicious imagery—sounds, smells, textures, and tastes that invite us to linger and savor the words that carry us from one place to another. This a book to read, reread, and read aloud. This book recently won Honorable Mention for best Children’s Book at the New York Book Festival!
