This simple story is literary art for children at bedtime: every child should have a 'life' on their own Maggie B.
Maggie Barnstable dreams of her own delightfully decorated boat. On board she happily scrubs and organizes, cooks favorite meals, and entertains little brother James. When an evening storm arises she confidently "battens the hatches", they then sit down for a delightful evening meal. The Maggie B. is a cozy bed time story, selectively and imaginatively presenting a child's self-made haven of personal pride and comfort.
