Bertie the Barge

Bertie the Barge cheerfully delivers goods to and from businesses along the canal and river network.  Travel with him as he  prevents a delay when the lock gates jam up, and later gets a brand new paint job.  Introducing children to the canal systems and demonstrating links between raw materials and businesses, this entertaining and educational book is written and beautifully illustrated by former trawlerman John L. D. Barnett.
