Our nameless hero catches a baby in his hat and receives a reward from the mother and now he is off on a sea of adventures. Love the illustrations, but the story is definitely imaginative.

Aug 20, Lindsay rated it liked it Shelves: Oct 26, Julia Breidt rated it liked it Shelves: I really loved the illustrations in this story! However, I felt the ending was odd when the boy who brings home a baby in his hat returns from his years of travels to marry that same baby that had grown.
Mar 31, Benjamin Elliott rated it liked it. Sort of an odd telling. Both straightforward in the its presentation, but somewhat fantastical in the events that occur. Seems to fit the period, but come across as a bit disjointed with its modern audience. Biggest example of this is that the text reads the same throughout and doesn't specifically address the ages of the two main characters at any point. You have to go by the illustrations and a single reference to becoming a cabin boy and not an actual sailor or crew member to make a guess at Sort of an odd telling.
You have to go by the illustrations and a single reference to becoming a cabin boy and not an actual sailor or crew member to make a guess at their ages at the start of the story.
A large age difference between bride and groom in 19th century England is entirely reasonable, but it comes across as a bit jarring until you take the time to do the math and realize the characters were probably at the start of the story. Feb 06, Noell rated it liked it Shelves:
