Year 4 Literacy Class Review: Sailing Home

Sailing Home by Colin Thompson and Matt Ottley, Hodder Headline, 1996

Endless amounts of rain cause a house to set sail. My favourite part of this story is when they explain what they are doing while on the sea.

The main characters are the family and gran, they are all very adventurous and in the story they travel around the world in their house.

Sailing Home is a picture book that relies on its pictures more than its words.

The pictures help the story because if there were no pictures you would not know where they lived, what they were doing or even that they were out at sea.

I liked the book because I felt like I was looking through the main character’s eyes and I felt that I was a part of the story. This book is for people who like sailing, love the ocean and are interested in travelling.
