The Antlered Ship - Dashka Slater, Terry Fan

Staff Pick

Young Marco the fox is forever asking curious and unanswerable questions to no avail. So when The Antlered Ship (Simon & Schuster, $17.99) arrives, captained by deer who are recruiting more crew, Marco jumps at this chance for adventure. Each sailor, whether deer or pigeon, is seeking something; Marco just wants to meet “foxes with answers.” Daksha Slater describes the animals’ adventures and friendships in warm and poignant tones. The Fan Brothers use a combination of soft graphite for background, atmospheric mists, waves, and rocks; detailed ballpoint pen for the naturalistic animals, ship, and landscapes; and light, subtle colors to perfectly evoke this philosophical search. Ages 5-8.
