The Buster and Jack series is about a friendship between a little wooden boat and a seagull. Together they take on any problem life throws at them, as two heads are always better than one. The story set in the safe, sheltered neighbourhood of the harbour where Buster and Jack live with all their friends. The Harbour Master’s words are reassuring and fatherly as he keeps an eye on all under his care. The Mother Whale is the mother figure, in which her world is the great big ocean outside the gateway of the two beacons.
“These stories are ones that appeal to children who love “Thomas the Tank Engine,” and they cleverly tap into the interest, children have in things that move and also animals.”
