Bob was bored. "I'm bored," he said. "let's do something."
"Let's take a boat trip," said Joss.
"No way," said Bob.
"Why not?" asked Joss.
"We will get lost," said Bob.
"We won't get lost," said Joss.
Brief Synopsis: From the publisher: They get lost. Or do they? Join Bob and Joss on a hilarious adventure as they get shipwrecked on a tropical island.
Why I Like This Book: I enjoyed the opposing personalities (shown via art and text) of Bob and Joss with their different outlooks and that despite that, they are best friends. That in itself paves the path for an interesting situations -- which lead the reader along on a fun and funny adventure. Vin Vogel's art perfectly captures the spirit of this duo. A fun adventure for anyone to go on, but especially appealing to little boys. So fun, I didn't even mind sheepy-looking stormclouds or getting shipwrecked!
I'd like to see where Bob and Joss take us in the future!
