Beside the sea, there once lived a cow, a donkey, a sheep, a pig, and a tiny little mouse.

One warm, sunny morning--for no particular reason--they decided to go for a row in the bay.

Do you know who sank the boat?

    Good repetition - easy and fun to read aloud - great illustrations. Good introduction to the concept of weigh and balance. A cute book where the animals try and figure out/guess who sank the boat.

        I purchased this book for my 2year old grandson, and he loves it. The characters are drawn beautifully and easily identified. I can add or change each page at each reading, (adding sounds, pointing to particular points of interest etc) making it a grand adventure with each read. He also reads it to himself, making the animal noises, naming each character, enjoying the pictures. It is a particular favouite of his.

            I enjoy reading it to my 10 month old son. The pictures are intersting for him, it is short with not much writing on each page.

                "Funny . . . just right for the very young."
                The New Yorker

                An American Bookseller Pick of the List Book. Library of Congress Books for Children.

                Pamela Allen

                Pamela Allen is a phenomenon in the world of children's literature. For almost thirty years her picture books have enchanted generations of children in Australia and overseas and many of her titles have won prestigious awards and commendations. She has earned classic status through the enduring popularity of her stories with the very young.

                Pamela's books are full of the music of language; they are 'fragments of theatre', designed to be read aloud and shared between an adult and a child. Eight of Pamela's titles were adapted for the stage by Patch Theatre Company, an Grandpa and Thomas won the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award: Early Childhood and The Potato People was named an Honour Book in the same category in 2003, and Grandpa and Thomas and the Green Umbrella was shortlisted for the same award in 2007, as was Shhh! Little Mouse in 2008. Is Your Grandmother a Goanna? won a 2008 Speech Pathology of Australia Book of the Year Award, as did Our Daft Dog Danny in 2010.
