Rating
In 1983, beloved Caldecott-winning illustrator, Chris Van Allsburg, first invited readers to peer over the edge of a cliff to consider the wreck of a small sailboat. Had a churning sea carried the Zephyr up in a storm? Could waves ever have been so impossibly high? And what of the boy who had believed dared to chase the wind no matter where it lead? Now, thirty years later, the winds have shifted once again and you re invited back to the wreck of the Zephyr, to hear the story of the boy and his obsession to become the world s greatest sailor, and a storm that carried them to a place where boats sail on the wind, instead of on the water.Told in spare text and haunting, full-color pastels, Chris Van Allsburg s spectral sailboats once again take impossbile flight. In illustrations so vivid one can feel the whisper of wind and hear the flutter of canvas, depart this world for another to entertain the marvelous possibility of dreams. This 30th anniversarygiftedition includes a bonus digital audio file to download, read by Chris Van Allsburg, and astunning new jacket! "
