Too long for storytime. Boy trades work to get all the tools and supplies to make a boat. Then he has a party at the end. Gorgeous illustrations. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 061823151X, Hardcover)

In the deep blue waters of Lake Superior lies a small island of hummingbirds, rabbits, and hardy Norwegian fishing folk. On that island lives a boy named Carl who wants nothing more than to be out on the water in a boat of his own making. So this is a story of sawing, nailing, and sanding. But because Sand Island neighbors are closer than cousins, this is also a story of picking strawberries, moving rocks, and mending fishing nets fine as lace.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:17:34 -0400)

In 1916 on an island in Lake Superior, Carl builds himself a boat by bartering with the other islanders for parts and labor.
