About The Book

Bobo (accidentally!) risks getting lost at sea in this irresistible adventure starring everyone’s favorite frenemies.

Willie and Bobo are exploring. And just look at all they’ve found! There are spectacular sticks and teeny tiny non-bitey roly-poly bugs. And this—a red bucket! Why, that would make the perfect boat for Bobo. But while Willie is marveling over the prospects of Bobo as sailor man, the boat—and Bobo!—start to drift away. Far away! Is there anything Willie can do to save his best bud? Perhaps a certain cat can help…
