Description Holland America Line’s Captain Hans Mateboer has been writing stories for many years.  While working with children on board the ships, he realized there were few books available about ships and the oceans. He felt a strong desire to tell stories that would create an interest in the amazing and wonderful world of the oceans, and the adventures of those who sail on them.

This book is about real situations and real places written by an expert who has been at sea for many years. This makes it stand out from almost all other children’s books which are written by authors who researched a subject to fill a market need.

Teaching and sharing experiences will come far more natural to children when following a pattern which is similar to the way the mind of a child works. This book achieves this by frequently and freely jumping between fiction and reality.

Travel with Peter the Cruise Ship on a voyage to Alaska, where he discovers the challenges and the beauty of the Arctic. He reunites with old friends and makes new ones, such as Baldie the Eagle and Hazel the Harbor Seal. Once again the value of teamwork highlights an adventure that they, and you won’t forget.  Peter is on his way to Alaska and gets lost. He gets help from Baldie the Eagle and Hazel the Harbor Seal. He sees the Northern Light and runs into trouble with a glacier. With the help from Push the Tug Boat, Fluke the Whale and his family he manages to get out of the ice.
