“The Voyage of the Frog,” by Gary Paulson

“The Voyage of the Frog,” by Gary Paulson, is the moving tale of a boy and a sailboat.

Book Cover Art from The Voyage of the Frog by Gary PaulsonWhen fourteen-year-old David Alspeth’s uncle dies of cancer he leaves David with two things: a sailboat, The Frog, and a commission to dump his ashes in the open sea.

When David tries to carry out his uncles wishes, though, the voyage turns out to be more than he had expected. First a freak storm blows him off course and then he is becalmed. Caught out in the open sea, hundreds of miles from land, he comes to understand more about his uncle.

“The Voyage of the Frog,” is an interesting book about sailing and a young boy’s response to the death of a loved one. Gary Paulson skillfully weaves the story with understandable images and feelings. “The Voyage of the Frog,” is a book that I would recommend to anyone who likes boats and sailing.

Well so far I like the book because, it gives images of what it was like for David during his great journey but I agree I did not like the end it's like saying there is my story and i'm to lazy to finish. And i've learned that you have to mention everyone that you started with in the beginning you mention in the end.

Hello. I am wondering if you would be interested
in doing a website link swap? I notice your website: http://www.
blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5607223608114407209&postID=8590375830221634894 and my
blog are centered around the same subject matter. I'd really like to swap links or perhaps guest author a write-up for you. Here is my personal e-mail: leola_ritter@t-online.de. You should contact me if you're even remotely interested.
Many thanks.

Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
similar one and i was just curious if you get
a lot of spam responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any tips?
