Winner of the prestigious international Bologna Ragazzi Award for Fiction 2017

"A gorgeous homage to the power of the written word" Guardian

"A fresh and fascinating collaboration between two gifted masters" The New York Times

In this inspiring, lyrical tale about the rewards of reading and sharing stories, a little girl sails her raft "across a sea of words" to arrive at the house of a small boy. There she invites him to come away with her on an adventure. Through forests of fairy tales and across mountains of make-believe, the two travel together on a fantastical journey that unlocks the boy's imagination. Now a lifetime of magic lies ahead of him... But who will be next?
