For young makers and explorers comes Tomo Explores the World!
On a tiny island far to the north, there lives a young boy named Tomo whose life is filled with fish, fish, and more fish. Tomo was born into a family of the world’s strongest, wisest, and bravest fishermen. But Tomo has a secret―he doesn’t want to fish; he wants to explore the world beyond his small village!
When Tomo finds his great-grandfather’s Adventure Journal, full of fantastic inventions to build and exciting quests, he decides to become the greatest explorer in the world. With the help of his best friend, Maya, and his expert tracking dog, Captain, Tomo builds his own boat and sets off on an adventure at sea. On their jouney, Tomo, Maya, and Captain learn just how big the world is, and how much there is to discover.
Perfect for budding innovators who like to think outside the box, Tomo Explores the World is a fun and inspiring story that emphasizes creativity and imagination to achieve your goals.
