The boy builds himself a boat and sets off on the ocean adventure of a lifetime. He navigates by the light of the moon, battles sea currents and is kept company by dolphins and turtles. He makes new friends on a beautiful island but eventually, the echo of a voice he loves calls him home. Bolstered by his realised dreams, he returns to the embrace of his family - until his journeys start again. Filled with the wonder of the natural world and the joy of adventure, this is a story about dreaming big - and about the qualities you need to achieve your dreams: resilience, self-reliance, perseverance, preparation, curiosity, and joy. This picture book is inspired by the amazing true story of Julia's son's voyage around the world.
