Riassunto: An old man, wary of other people, looks after many neglected and strange animals on his lonely hill-top shack. Across the valley, the townspeople are fearful of the old man. When a huge deluge of rain turns the man's hill into an island, the actions of one brave boy save the man and his animals, and bring harmony to the valley.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3–Beautifully illustrated with somber pencil drawings, The Boat is a story closely linked with the biblical tale of the Flood. Text and illustrations support one another flawlessly. A young boy has a special connection to a mysterious man who lives as an outcast on an island with animals that have been hurt or abandoned. To him, the villagers are the noisiest, messiest, most inconsiderate... of all the creatures, while the boy recognizes the humanity in the grumpy old man. When a flood threatens to engulf the island, a boat appears out of the dark, and the boy responds, rowing toward it as the storm rages on. Ward's voice is sometimes self-conscious, stretching a bit to be mythic. Most annoying is the inconsistency of the writing, such as the sudden burst of alliteration: Trickles tipped caterpillars off their twigs, and turned to torrents. The font is elongated and elegant. At crucial moments, the print is quite large, adding dramatic emphasis. In the end, this work reminds readers that an individual, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, can make a difference.–Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MA
