Although perhaps over-long for kindergarteners, first and second graders should find this latest Jamie adventure, with boats, to their liking. There were many boats in Uncle Matt's boathouse, all with different names and noises, but no one wanted to rent the little rubber boat which bobbed so disconsolately against the pier. But Jamie's brave rescue of Skeeter the kitten changes Uncle Matt's mind about the boat. Appealing illustrations in black and white and blue by Lys Cassal. Board bound, with a pint-size format.
