Zoom by Tim Wynne-Jones

This collection brings together all three of Tim Wynne-Jones' Zoom stories: Zoom at Sea, Zoom Away, and Zoom Upstream. Zoom is a little cat who loves the idea of the sea and of adventure. He comes by it naturally; his uncle is a famous explorer who travels the world in search of adventure and discovery. Before reading this book I was only familiar with Zoom at Sea, where I fell hard for Eric Beddows' gorgeous illustrations. This is a lovely collection that would be great for children (and adults) who love cats, adventure, and great Canadian books.

Find it at IndieBound.
