‘Dreamer.’ Mum called her. ‘Always miles away.’
Sadie lives by the Thames at Greenwich and longs for sea adventure. She whiles away hours at The Maritime Museum or gazing at The Cutty Sark and fills her head with dreams of ocean voyages on ancient sailing ships.
One day she falls asleep beneath a cabinet in the museum and wakes to find herself embarking on an adventure of which she could only have dreamed …
‘And there inside she found a different world
Where rigging sang and white winged sails unfurled.’
Duffy’s lyrical poetry and Joice’s richly imaginative illustrations create an unforgettable voyage into a magical world of dolphins, mermaids, pirates and treasure.
