Joey and the Jet Boat

This picture shoes the cover page of Joey and the JetboatCarol, my cousin, visited me during a house sit in Queenstown.  On my regular walk to the Lower Shotover River with my three Lagotto Romagnolo dogs, Carol captured some enchanting images of Joey (meet Joey’s friends here and here) and turned his regular river exploits into a child’s early reader book.  The book is written in a popular, simple style that appeals to the early reader.

Joey and the Jet boat is available for purchase at $11.50 per copy plus packaging and postage ($3 for up to 3 copies)

This book is a small softcover reader of 12 pages (including covers)

  1. I was very excited when I heard Carol was going to write this reading book about Joey and was blown away when I saw the draft. The pictures are awesome and the story is great for young children to read. The book captures the joy Joey has when he visits the river each day. This will be a book on my book shelf (when I get one) awaiting a grandchild (when I get one) or young person to read.
