The Boy Who Sailed the World is a beautifully lyrical picture book about a boy who follows his dreams and sails around the world in a boat he has built himself.

‘Right from the start, the boy loved the sea! He ran along the sand, danced in and out of the waves, his heart full of longing and delight’

The wonders of the world await you in this inspiring book about following your dreams.
