Howie is the most spirited boat on the big blue sea, with the brightest smile you’ve ever seen. When a storm hits while he’s separated from his family and trying to get back home, he starts to feel scared and lonely but not for long. Just as the rain picks up, Howie discovers his path home! Howie soon learns he can always find his way, even in the toughest of times. Available for order at your local bookstore and Amazon.com, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers.
