Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

From the talented Polly Dunbar comes an imaginative adventure that will have children sailing away on their own flights of fancy. <br> <br> One night, Arthur has an amazing dream about a pink and green boat with a striped mast and a beautiful figurehead. He can't wait to tell his family about it! But when he tries, no one (not even the dog) is interested in listening. In fact, they don't even notice when the very same boat gradually appears on his head, growing larger and larger by the minute! Soon Arthur is bouncing over the waves in his very own dream boat. Maybe now his family will listen to him!

Horn Book Review

Arthur's family members are too preoccupied to listen to his dream about a boat--or even notice that one is literally growing on his head. While sailing in the full-size vessel, he finally gets their attention when he saves them from drowning. This charming fantasy, which plays out in lilting illustrations, taps into a feeling familiar to young readers: being overlooked. (c) Copyright 2012.
