    When Oona Britt was born in the magical town of Nordlor, where all of the homes are built from wrecked ships, her parents never expected her to be a girl. Having listened to a faulty prediction from a washed-up soothsayer, they were promised 'bold and brave son', so as the youngest of seven sisters, Oona's birth became a disappointment - especially to her sea captain father, who doesn't believe there's a place for girls aboard ships. But Oona is different from the rest of her family. She longs for adventure and knowledge.

    The charming, eccentric, heartwarming tale of a friendship between a lonely old coffin maker whose family is gone and a little boy in need of safe harbour. Everybody on the wonderful Italian island knows Alberto. The old man has made coffins for the great, the good, the poor and the rich for as long as they can remember. They know, too, that ever since his wife died and his children left, he's withdrawn further and further into himself. Indeed, he's become positively grumpy.

    Curious, pin-bright Oona Britt dreams of setting sail with her ship’s captain father for a life of excitement on the wild waves. She has read stories of a magical creature - the Nardoo - who swims through the stars at night, and she stows away on whaling boat the Plucky Leopard for an adventure full of myths and marvel among the ice caps. In her second outing, Matilda Woods has crafted an enchanting, charming story of bravery on the ice-tipped ocean.
