Frequently bought together
“The spare, spot-on text is the perfect complement to the artist's warm and satisfying soft-focus artwork.” ―School Library Journal
“The basic language allows children to elaborate on the story from their own experience and imagination. The large type size means this book will function well as a transitional book as your child starts to recognize words and practices reading. Parents will enjoy the vintage feel of Peter McCarty's exquisite pencil illustrations while children will respond to the loveable animals.” ―Armchair Interviews

The artwork is soft and unique with beautiful, soothing colors.
The story is deceptively simple with only a couple short sentences per page, but there seems to be something totally captivating in this book for toddlers. My girl would happily ask to read this book 5 times in a row or more.
I've been very impressed by the lasting impression this book has had for my toddler. The concepts and vocab have stuck with her. She is now often using the terms: "going on adventure", "full and fat" & discussing fish and fishermen. Super cute!
A sequel, Fabian Escapes, is similarly wonderful, and I highly recommend them both! They're short and simple enough to be read to even very young children, and the illustrations are so beautiful that adults won't get tired of reading them over and over again. I honestly read one or the other as a bedtime story to MYSELF at least 2 or 3 times a week! These books will be my staple purchase for every baby shower I attend from now on!
