Suitable for ages:

This is a cute story for young children. It is accompanied by charming illustrations that bring it to life. We see the story from the perspective of a young boy who wants to leave home and become a sailor, but we also see the same story from the perspective of his siblings and his parents. With this mode of writing the author brings out the charm of childhood. It gives us a feeling of the seriousness with which children experience the everyday.

A beautiful book all around. Very charming, without being over the top.
