More About This Title Minton Goes Sailing


Minton the spotty salamander has leapt out of The Hottest Boy Who Ever Lived to have his own adventures. Minton loves things that move—boats, planes, cars, and trucks. And he always finds just what he needs to make these vehicles. After each story, there are directions for making Minton’s favorite modes of transportation out of everyday kitchen materials such as margarine tubs, plastic bottles, corks, and skewers.

Minton can’t wait to make a boat so that he and his friend Turtle can sail to an island on the horizon. There they meet Bouncer the acrobat, who has been stranded since she made the most gigantic, enormous jump and flew right out of the city and over the ocean.
