Marco is a fox who wants to know everything - he's always asking "why"? As he's pondering a number of questions, a ship appears on the horizon so Marco hops aboard, hoping to find foxes with answers. With many stories, it turns out that the journey is more important than the destination. Gorgeously illustrated, this is a wonderful read aloud for ages 3 through elementary school.

An inquisitive fox sets off on a seafaring voyage with a crew of deer and pigeons in this enchanting tale of friendship and adventure.

Marco the fox has a lot of questions, like: how deep does the sun go when it sinks into the sea? And why do birds have such lizardy feet? But none of the other foxes share his curiosity. So when a magnificent ship adorned with antlers and with a deer for a captain arrives at the dock looking for a crew, Marco volunteers, hoping to find foxes who are as inquisitive as he is that can answer his questions. The crew finds adventure and intrigue on their journey. And, at last, Marco finds the answer to his most important question of all: What's the best way to find a friend you can talk to?
