Tuesday, April 19, 2011. As with most things vintage children's books related in our house, a small bout of puppy love can fast turn into a full blown obsession. Uncle Louie's Fantastic Sea Voyage Jan Lööf ~ Random House, 1977. Little did I know that my post last Thursday would start an avalanche of awesome into my mailbox. Case in point, this story. Here we have a book that appeals to my sense of everything in a myriad of different ways. The illustrations are rich in color, leaned a bit on the cartoonish (which I always like).

Jan Lööf (born 30 May 1940 in Trollhättan) is a Swedish illustrator, author, comic creator, and jazz musician. Lööf studied at the Stockholm Art Academy in the early 1960s. From 1967 until 1973 he created his most famous comic strip Felix, which soon gained popularity into many parts of the world. Mixing humor and adventure, Felix has sometimes been described as a more naivistic or underground style version of Tintin, in terms of the drawing style, but in its themes and morale it is also somewhat leftist.

Africa, as Uncle Louie happily chortles? No, the local zoo, from which Rusty's reproachful parents soon retrieve them. Millstone is dejected, but pity the poor reader. In a galloping compendium of kiddie-book clichÉs (drawn to match), young tinkerer Rusty goes to stay with junk-dealer Uncle Louie and finds him building a paddle steamer-with mad-magician crony Millstone-to sail off to Africa. A strong wind comes up-coincidence or Millstone's magic?-and the voyagers crash-land on a shore where, mirabile dictu, there's a ""typical African hut,"" a zebra, a rhinoceros. Africa, as Uncle Louie happily chortles? No, the local zoo, from which Rusty's reproachful parents soon retrieve them.

Jan Lööf's own books for children have been very popular, both in Sweden and worldwide. Among them are "The Story of the Red Apple" and "Uncle Louie's Fantastic Sea Voyage".

Jan Loof has become a favorite author of mine. He does wonderful children's books that show just enough of a quirkiness that makes he interesting for adults as well. Rusty is a kid who is lucky enough to know unusual people. Uncle Louie is a junk dealer with a fantastic imagination and a desire to see Africa. His friend Millstone is a gray, kindly frankenstein looking individual who is convinced that he has magical powers. They build a boat and sit off for Africa and find it after an evening spent in the midst of a storm. It isn't really Africa but the adventure is real and the book is a keeper. Designed for five year to eight year olds and people who want to know how a water wheel can be used to power a boat.

Uncle Louie’s Fantastic Sea Voyage was written by Jan Loof, and it was originally published in 1977.

Rusty is a young boy who enjoys tinkering with things. As the story begins, Rusty’s parents are going away, and are leaving him with his Uncle Louie. Rusty is pleased with this; his uncle has a scrap yard, and also enjoys tinkering. Uncle Louie has a grand plan to sail to Africa in a paddle streamer that he is building himself. Rusty meets Uncle Louie’s friend Millstone, who looks very mysterious. Rusty stows away on the boat, and sees Millstone casting some magical spells- but can the boat and the spells really take them all the way to Africa?

This is another book with very memorable illustrations. I remembered them from thirty years ago! The illustrations are rendered in a very realistic style, and there are lots of little details to look at. Of course, there’s also that mysterious element: Millstone looks just like Frankenstein’s monster, lives in a dilapidated water mill, and plays spooky music on a pipe organ!

My girls enjoyed reading this book. One twin was sure that they had really sailed to Africa, and the other remained skeptical. I won’t give away which girl was correct, but this is a wonderful story with elements of mystery and adventure. I don’t think Rusty will forget his visit with Uncle Louie anytime soon!

I would recommend Uncle Louie’s Fantastic Sea Voyage. This book has been out of print for years, but used copies are readily available on Amazon. This is a fun story that will appeal to children in the early years of elementary school.

I grew up with this book and am now hoping to read it to my baby when he's a bit older. The art is magical. That's the best word to describe it really. The story as I recall is about a boy who decides to go with his uncle on a trip to sea. Uncle Louie wants to sail to Africa and they leave at night. A few hours later they hit land and see huts through the darkness where they sleep through the night. They awaken to see a zebra outside but realize the short trip they took didn't take them to Africa, but to the city zoo!
