[Book Review] The Sailor Dog by Margaret Wise Brown, Garth Williams (Illustrator)

Book review of The Sailor Dog by Margaret Wise Brown, Garth Williams (Illustrator)

The Sailor Dog by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Garth Williams, is an adorable story about Scuppers the Dog and his adventure across the sea!

This book was recommended to me by Lauren Stoolfire of Always Me. So thanks, Lauren, for putting this on my radar!

Synopsis: 
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!


My thoughts:
Oh my goodness, this book is adorable! The storyline is short and sweet, but also very exciting! Scuppers goes on quite the adventure.

The illustrations are also very lovely! I mean, just check out this scene:

Scuppers the Dog is a great character! It was really fun to turn the page and see see him doing something I didn't expect, as many things he did were so human-like.



My final thoughts:
Very enjoyable as an adult, but I cannot wait to read this one to my future kiddos to see their reactions!




Thanks for reading!
