Nosey's Wild Ride on the Belle of Louisville is a story about a steamboat on the Ohio River, the Belle of Louisville. She is the only steamboat in the country built during the Great Steamboat Era (1820s to the 1920s) that is still cruising! A mischievous cat wanders on board the Belle and leads four children on a wild chase all over the boat. This rascal of a cat causes pandemonium wherever he goes. In turn, the children learn what makes a steamboat unique.
This book, authored by Martha Driscoll, includes the whimsical ink and colored pencil drawings of award-winning artist Sue Lion, as well as a Seek-&-Find activity for young readers. Both children and adults will enjoy this historically accurate and highly informative book about one very special steamboat — the Belle of Louisville.
