Expecting nothing but monotonous days stuck with his annoyingly precocious sister Caroline, Tommy reluctantly sails away into Lake Michigan bound for the Atlantic Ocean on a 46 foot Sloop. He soon discovers, though, that often the most exciting parts of life come with the uncharted territories of the world at large, and that sometimes the greatest lessons come from simple moments with the ones who love us most. A charming tale of self-discovery, open water and a dog that finds his forever home with a boy on a boat called Imagine, "The Sailing Adventures of Tommy Tiller" is bound to captivate the hearts of curious adventurers of all ages.
