The Antlered Ship
by Slater, Dashka
In this enchanting tale of friendship and adventure, Marco the fox sets off on a voyage with a crew of deer and pigeons. Marco has many questions–How deep does the sun go, when it sinks into the sea? Why do birds have such lizardy feet?–but the other foxes he knows don’t share his curiosity. So when a magnificent antlered ship captained by a deer comes looking for crew, Marco signs on, hoping to discover other curious foxes. On a voyage filled with adventure and intrigue, Marco answers his most important question: What’s the best way to find a friend you can talk to? Ages 4 to 8.
