A little boy goes riding on a boat. He has been told many fearful stories of sea monsters and strange sea creatures. But what really happens on the boat? Then he is taken high up, far above the land in a tiny plane. The pilot loves to take his plane up and down, diving and swooping. Is that fun? On a train, the boy goes slowly up a hill, amidst piles of snow, through an amazing winterland. But this is no ordinary train, for it is taking a whole load of schoolboys to their boarding school. Can such a train ride really be exciting?
