Morgan and her dog take an accidental journey down the river that flows past the summer cottage where they holiday with Morgan's mother. As they float along, they observe landscapes, life on the water, various birds and people enjoying the activities the river has to offer. The story is about not only their adventure but also community, and how the people who see them drifting past make sure they come to no danger. The story ends at the local wharf, where the entire community celebrates the pair's adventure and safe return.
CM Magazine - January 23, 2015
"Bald’s images highlight the intricate Prince Edward Island landscape that is experienced by Morgan. The vibrant watercolour illustrations of the landscape complement the sense of shared wonderment experienced by Morgan and the reader who is experiencing Morgan’s world through her eyes...At the story’s end, readers will have gained an understanding of both child and adult perceptions when it comes to realizing the dangers that also come with learning and exploring one’s natural surroundings."
