About this title


After he is packed off to stay with his Great Aunt Hortensia (the Warden), while his parents pursue their dream of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Walter fears that he is in for the worst summer ever. But then he befriends a mysterious neighbor, Old Zeb, a lonely grizzled sailor who builds ships in bottles. Full color.


"The 'follow your dream' moral is prevalent throughout the text and reinforced by the dreamlike quality of the illustrations. Behind the talk of adventuring is a reassurance that even though adults have their own dreams and adventures, they still love and return to their children." - School Library Journal "Cuban storyteller Carmen Agra Deedy has crafted a dashing tale packed with skullduggery, schooners and galleons. Wise guys will especially like young Walter's witty narration and his sly (but never snide) asides." - Miami Herald
