Booklist - 01/01/2017 Preschooler Bob is bored. His laid-back buddy Joss suggests a boat trip, but ever-fearful Bob says no, in case they get lost. Joss assures him they won’t, so of course, by page two, the duo is lost at sea. Bob sees ominous storm clouds, but Joss soothes him, mentioning how one cloud resembles a bunny. By the next page, that bunny has turned into a tropical gale. Bob frantically struggles for survival after the resulting shipwreck, while Joss wanders around, munching on fruit kabobs. Eventually Bob pauses in his frenzied actions to question where Joss’ snorkel and beach ball have come from. From the nearby resort, Joss tells him. The last page shows the boys surrounded by all sorts of beach amenities: “I’m bored”; Bob announces. Meticulous longitude and latitude updates perfectly offset the zany cartoon illustrations. Joss’ relaxed approach keeps things from ever getting scary, even when Bob is at his lowest. Readers (even the Bobs of the group) will enjoy this rollicking tale of friendship and adventure. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
