Captain Sky Blue

Fun and adventure from Caldecott Medal winner Richard Egielski On Christmas morning, Jack meets his “best toy pal,” Captain Sky Blue, a pilot figurine who springs from his box and salutes his new friend. Together, Jack and Sky build a plane from a kit and send Sky on aerial missions. Then lightning destroys the little aircraft, and Sky parachutes away but is blown far from home. Egielski’s action-packed artwork hits its full, fantastical stride in the subsequent scenes, which follow Sky deep into the ocean, where he explores both a whale’s belly and a submarine, until a magic elevator sends him straight into the dry haven of Santa’s workshop. After repackaging himself as a gift for Jack, Sky faces one more perilous flight: he helps Santa steer his sleigh through a driving storm safely to Jack’s house, where the friends joyfully reunite. ~Booklist, amazon.com
