Bark Ship Bonnie is a sailing-adventure picture book by Stephanie Staib featuring a strong, resourceful girl, her loyal dog, and their boat—complete with a “Ship Slang” glossary and diagram of a real bark ship—beautifully illustrated by Fiona Lee.
Bonnie lass and her trusted furry first mate cast off, set sail, chase sea tales, befriend whales, scope islands, outwit squalls, and make it home in time to slip back into the slip and sleep in this delightfully salty tale of a girl, her dog, and a boat.
Debut picture book author Stephanie Staib is an avid boater who lives with her family in Milton, Delaware, a 19th-century shipbuilding community known for its multimasted schooners.
Fiona Lee is an illustrator who lives and works on her family’s farm in Vermont. Her books include Eat Your Peas, Julius!, published by Cameron Kids.
