In this inspiring, lyrical tale about the rewards of reading and sharing stories, a little girl sails her raft across a sea of words to arrive at the house of a small boy.

Through forests of fairy tales and across mountains of make-believe, the two travel together on a fantastical journey that unlocks the boy's imagination. Now a lifetime of magic lies ahead of him... But who will be next?
