Join a child captain and parent first mate as they embark on a wild high seas adventure-all without leaving the living room! This imaginative romp of a picture book is filled with glorious illustrations from a beloved Caldecott Medalist and New York Times bestselling creator. Raise the mainsail! Batten the hatches! It's time to set sail...on the couch! There's a storm coming, and a child is ready to captain the ship. "Make haste and climb aboard," they call out to their parent, "before you're swept out to sea!" Sea? What sea? The parent is only trying to vacuum the rug. But the child is adamant. It's not a rug--it's the ocean. And that broom? It's the ship's mast. Soon enough, child and parent are both off on an imaginary nautical adventure! Here is a thoroughly engaging, hilarious picture book that celebrates the joys of playing make-believe--and hanging out with a parent!… (more)

It's not a rug, it's an ocean! A child in a striped shirt invites an adult in a yellow hat to abandon their vacuum and join in their imaginative play. A phone call interrupts the game, but they're able to regain their momentum (and escape from sharks and storms). A glossary on the copyright page explains seafaring terms such as ahoy, batten the hatches, and doldrums. ( )
