We read about the quest of a lifetime for an inquisitive fox in The Antlered Ship. He sets out in search of answers to his myriad questions, but the realizations he eventually come to are not what he expected. They’re much more meaningful and it turns out that his heart was actually longing for something totally different altogether. The fox’s epic journey is portrayed in breathtaking, dream-like illustrations by the Fan brothers. One of our absolute favorite books this year, and a special reading experience to be sure.
The Antlered Ship was written by Dashka Slater and illustrated by Eric and Terry Fan. Published by Beach Lane Books.
