A new version of an old classic. The Old Sailor swallows a krill and all manner of fishy snacks. Great for reading out loud.

..a pleasure to read aloud and neither reader nor enthralled listener will tire from repeat performances
Booktopia Buzz Jan 2010
This book is full of humour, and text and illustrations that will enthral young readers. It also introduces them to the amazing creatures that inhabit the sea. The Old Sailor is a great character and the resolution is satisfying for the reader. It’s a great book for the classroom – especially for those grades studying sea creatures.
