An enchanting, charming story of bravery on the ice-tipped ocean, with stunning art by Anuska Allepuz on every page. Curious, pin-bright Oona Britt dreams of setting sail with her ship's captain father for a life of excitement on the wild waves. She has read stories of a magical creature - the Nardoo - who swims through the stars at night, and stows away on whaling boat the Plucky Leopard for an adventure full of myths and marvel among the ice-caps. Bestselling author Kiran Millwood Hargrave on Matilda's first book, The Boy, the Bird and the Coffin Maker: "This luminous tale of loss, love and finding family is threaded through with the power of storytelling, and a touch of magic."
