The Jolly Steamship

Illustrated by Walter Trier

The Jolly Steamship is ready to set sail! All the passengers, except a hard-to-please Pekinese, love watching the weird and wonderful creatures they meet on their journey—from diving dolphins, smiling seals, and wallowing whales to a jazzy octopus and a dishy jellyfishy. When the Jolly Steamship sails home, even the Peke wants to come back next year.

Harry Rowohlt’s rollicking rhymes and Walter Trier’s quirky 1940s illustrations make this voyage irresistible fun.
