I want to give this book 6 stars. T.B.Ering has written and illustrated a book that I can see becoming a Classic. The illustrations evoke all the emotions of the characters: joy, sympathy, loneliness, fear, surprise, hope and determination and happiness. The story is told in short bits of words and sentences and the whole tale moves swiftly without talking down to young readers. The entire packaging of this publication with embossing of the illustration on the cover captivated and inspired me to read this from the moment I saw it. Surely others will read it, love it, and share it.

The illustrations in this book are wonderful. You can "feel" the tossing sea and the dense fog. Also the music represented by colored strokes in the sky adds to the beauty of the book. The open ending gave the perfect twist to end the story.
