Описание

A re-issue of Tim Wynne-Jones and Eric Beddows’ classic picture book Zoom at Sea, published in celebration of Groundwood’s 35th anniversary. The enhanced epub version includes a read-aloud feature of the story narrated by Tim Wynne-Jones.

This fanciful nautical adventure stars a winsome cat named Zoom, who stays indoors paddling in the sink or sailing in the bathtub all night when other self-respecting cats are out mousing and howling at the moon.

One day Zoom finds in his Uncle Roy's diary a map of the sea and how to get there, which leads him to the huge house of the beautiful Maria. When, with the turn of a large wheel, mysterious Maria launches him on a wonderful sea voyage, the first of Zoom’s adventures begins.

    Zoom was a cat who loved water. He liked to play at sailing in the bathtub, and would spend his nights watching the tap and dreaming. Then one day he found a letter from his Uncle Roy, instructing him on how to get to the sea, which turned out to be located inside the home of a mysterious woman named Maria. After setting sail, Zoom had a marvelous day at sea, before returning to shore (AKA Maria's home), where he was assured he could come back, at any time he liked...An entertaining work of picture-book fantasy, Zoom at Sea was the first of a trilogy of stories - subsequent titles include Zoom Away and Zoom Upstream - from Canadian author/illustrator team Tim Wynne-Jones and Eric Beddows devoted to the adventures of this unusual feline. The story here is quirky, with plenty of surreal elements that the narrative simply takes in its stride, presenting as matter-of-fact realities. The sea being inside a house, for instance, and something that is put together (so to speak) by the mysterious Maria. The artwork, done in graphite pencil, is intricate and quite lovely, with so many wonderful little details. I particularly loved Zoom's changing facial expressions! Highly recommended by a colleague, this book was once described by a reviewer at the Toronto Star as "the most completely satisfying Canadian picture-book ever produced." I don't know if I'd go that far, but I certainly think it is marvelous, and sure to appeal both to young cat lovers and to readers who enjoy surreal fantasy and fairy-tale fiction. I read the 35th Anniversary edition of Zoom at Sea, which would seem to indicate that this is a book with some staying power!
