Every few years, a book comes along which is an absolute stand-out in its genre and this just such a one. A wonderfully varied collection of self penned and traditional sea stories. Beautifully written, beautifully illustrated and beautifully produced, this is a book to read and escape to other worlds, with illustrations to pore over and to treasure. A wonderful book - don't miss it. -- School Librarian
