Off and Away
Written and illustrated by Cale Atkinson
In Off and Away, Jo faces her fears when her dad gets sick and there is no one to take over his very important job!
Jo’s dad, you see, delivers messages in bottles.
Jo is initially scared of the unknown, but through sheer guts and tenacity, she discovers that the world is not such a scary place after all. And to top it all, she becomes just as great of an adventurer as her dad!
I love the artwork in this picture book. It is majestic and beautifully detailed.
The story serves as a good lesson for all of us without being preachy, and the monsters are great! Really great!
