A lovely nautical excursion that brings a ship-in-a-bottle intricacy to each page. Moody seascapes that wouldn’t be out of place on a vintage watercolor tin spring to life in elegant pop-ups as Lo Monaco showcases six sea vessels, including a lifeboat, caravel, tall ship, and ocean liner. Brief accompanying rhymes have the air of sung chanteys, and background details about the boats’ origins, feats, and specifications are included. — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
This jaunty, rhyming maritime adventure about two sailors and a dog showcases an eclectic fleet of spectacularly crafted pop-up boats. Celebrated Argentinian paper engineer Gérard Lo Monaco outdoes himself in A Sea Voyage. Fans of all things nautical will be over the moon.
