The Voyage of the Poppy KettleISBN: 0698400259;
Book DescriptionSet in ancient Peru, there is a village of miniature people who lead a peaceful life sailing and fishing. But when the Spanish invade, the little community has to find a new home. The intrepid fishermen transform an old tea kettle into a ship and set out on the high seas to find the land "beyond the horizon." They dodge ferocious iguanas, crash onto reefs, and nearly sink in a terrible storm, but finally the kettle comes to rest on a strange new land the little Peruvians can call home. Robert Ingpen has vividly captured this modern Australian folk tale with rich illustrations and a fun sense of detail. This is an imaginative story about setting off into the unknown.
