'Your dad says you're too young to have a rowboat so don't bother your head with it, boy..... A tender story of a boy and his grandfather, of the love they find in making things together, and the joy of giving.' back cover

Notes

  • Dedication: 'In memory of Steven Woolman (1969-2004) who in a bewildered world was always certain of beauty.'
  • 'Award-winning author and illustrator, Mark Svendsen and Steven Woolman, combined their exceptional talents to begin this picture book. But it was Laura Peterson who took up the challenge of completing the artwork after Steven's untimely death before the task was done. Laura's glowing pastels are based on Steven's own roughs and poignant photographs of his father and nephew. Steven Woolman's final book is a tribute to his outstanding achievement in book illustration.' (Back cover.)
