Layla the Sailor

Daniel Clarke & Layla Clarke


To the sea they ran, and so began
the most unlikely tale:
A girl and a hound, horizon-bound,
as their little boat set sail.

Layla loves to sail the seven seas and she does this all by herself. But one day, while visiting port, she finds a little dog who is flea-bitten and lonely. Soon Layla and Fred are a team, living the sea-faring dream. But every adventure has an end, and sometimes you have to say goodbye to your very best friend. There is a time to weep, and a time to sail again on the ocean deep.

A delightful rhyming story for adventurous children, companionable dogs, and friends who must say goodbye.
