Imagine letting your eleven year old son board a ship in Colombo bound for England.  This is the stage Ondaatje set’s for three young adolescent boys traveling alone in the 1950’s. I still feel the sheer sense of joy the boys experience finding each other at the Cat’s Table and begin their adolescent romp exploring the ship.  In exquisite prose Ondaatje weaves this well told story of their adventures on board ship and after.

Just when you thought you'd seen every possible version of an opposites board book, along comes one that is the opposite of all the rest!! Gorgeous graphics and unusual pairings (clear - blurry; invisible-visible) make this book a must for every child's library. Take a look.
