I actually felt happier when I saw the cover for this book! A sailing ship under a star-studded sky fairly breathes magic (of all sorts).
Ah, but this is a special kind of magic. I hadn't quite got the hang of it when the "Look Inside" portion ended (aka perfect timing!), but it's an interesting story. A fish that isn't a fish; a rock that's much more than just a rock; and a big brother/eldest son that sounds very brave! I may have to come back and finish this one later. :-)
