The Boat Summary

The Boat by Helen Ward

An old man, wary of other people, looks after many neglected and strange animals on his lonely hill-top shack. Across the valley, the townspeople are fearful of the old man. When a huge deluge of rain turns the man's hill into an island, the actions of one brave boy save the man and his animals, and bring harmony to the valley.

The Boat Reviews

Nicola Bevan, Junior Education, July 2005 'On a hill among hills lived an old man'... So begins Helen Ward's The Boat, a surreal and life-affirming story in which kindness conquers fear and flood. When the old man's extraordinary menagerie is flung into danger, an Arthurian boat appears through the mists and a young boy rows to the rescue. Ian Andrew's subtle and sympathetic pencil drawings swirl the reader along to the radiant conclusion. Sheer magic.
