Product Description

“When you are away, Papa, day turns into night.” These are a young boy’s thoughts as he sees his surroundings change in the absence of his father. “Sometimes, I imagine you on the deck of your ship.” This is one of ten seafarer children’s stories that won the 2nd Gig Book Storywriting Contest and is published as part of the Gig Seafarer Children’s Stories series. When you read and share this book, you join an ever-expanding circle that gathers round people and things that warm the cockles of our hearts: our children, books and reading, and the strength and resilience of families—especially where the father is mostly away at sea.
