Synopsis: "Believing is Seeing"

In the tradition of such favorite classics as Gulliver’s Travels and Journey to the Center of the Earth, Voyage of the Basset takes the reader on a fantastical journey of discovery. Through richly detailed full-color paintings and line drawings, magical kingdoms emerge from a sea of dreams.

Cassandra Aisling, who is nine years and eleven months old, doesn’t care “a jot” about what sensible people think. She likes strange, mysterious, and magical things. So when her world gets tumbled upside down, she boards the H.M.S. Basset, ready to explore the landscape of her imagination. Pledging allegiance to the Basset’s motto, “Credendo do Vides...Believing is Seeing,” 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 fairies and the mermaids’ siren songs to a labyrinth-bound Minotaur and a fire-breathing dragon, the Aisling family witnesses firsthand the wonder of mythological worlds.

In this lavishly illustrated edition, Cassandra’s adventures intertwine with her father’s scientific scribblings to present both new tales and the essence of classical myths. From the two voices, readers learn the power of imagination, the importance of believing in oneself, the value of family, and the need for creative, cooperative problem-solving. The story of a magical journey and the exquisite fantasy artwork will appeal to young and old alike.

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.
