Toy Boat by Randall de Seve

A little boy has a toy boat.  He made it from a can, a cork, a yellow pencil, and some white cloth. 

The boy and his boat are inseparable--until a big storm pushes the toy boat out into the wide and wild lake.  Will the little boat survive alone and make it back to its boy?
