Synopsis: In 1850, with the importance of myths in question, Professor Aisling and his two young daughters embark on a journey aboard a magical ship and encounter an assortment of characters who prove the power of stories.
From the Inside Flap: Cassandra Aisling, who was nine years and eleven months old (which made her very, very close to ten), didn't care a joy what sensible people thought. She liked strange, mysterious and magical things. So when her world got not just tilted, but wholly, truly and topsy-turvily tangled and tumbled upside down, she boarded the H.M.S. Basset, ready to explore the landscape of imagination.
Pledging allegiance to the Basset's motto, Credendo Vides...By Believing, One Sees..., Cassandra, her skeptical older sister, Miranda, and their father, professor Algernon Aisling, set out in search of the ancient legends. From the flickering flight of faeries to the mermaids' siren songs, a labyrinth-bound Minotaur to a fire-breathing dragon, the Aisling family witnesses firsthand the wonder of mythological worlds. Cassandra's adventures intertwine with her father's scientific scribblings to present both new tales and the essence of classic myth.
In the tradition of such favorites as Gulliver's Travels and Around the World in 80 Days, Voyage of the Basset takes the reader on a fantastical journey of discovery. Through richly detailed, full-color images and line drawings, magical kingdoms emerge from a sea of dreams.
