OF ALL THE CHILDREN’S BOOKS out there, the one I would most like to read to my kids is There Once was a Boat From Nantucket. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because no one has written it…yet.
The brainchild for this book is Scott Douglas. In 2008, Douglas and his brother-in-law were tossed off his boat, Queen Bee, by a wave during a fishing trip. The men swam ashore safely, but the boat was carried out to sea and presumably sunk by the crashing waves.
