At the edge of a cliff lies the wreck of a small sailboat. How did it get there? Waves carried it up in a storm, says an old sailor. But is it possible that waves could ever go that high? There is another story the story of a boy and his desire to be the greatest sailor, the story of a storm that carried the boy and his boat to a place where boats glide like gulls high above the water.

"The full-colour pastel drawings are the work of a master: stunning, luminescent, and conveying a sense of the mystical and magical." * Publishers Weekly * "This delightful picture book is a real gem. Its haunting pastel illustrations glow, and its ambiguous and finely written story encourages readers to wonder" -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * Booksellers' Choice, The Bookseller * "Beautifully descriptive prose . . . The sophisticated storyline makes this a tale for thoughtful and reflective older readers" * Carousel *
