- “The canal, next stop!”
Canal Cruise is a rhyming magazine story.
Percy is taking the Fat Controller and his grandchildren to the speedboat hut as the Fat Controller had promised to give them a ride on a speedboat. The speedboat trip is bumpy. As it races across the sea, the Fat Controller has to admit that the ride is too rough for him.
Later, the Fat Controller allows Bridget to pick their next ride. She concludes that she too wants a boat ride, but one that is more inland. Percy takes them to the canal where Bridget chooses a narrow boat. The Fat Controller is very happy with her choice.
- In the final illustration, the narrow boat can be coloured in my the reader.
