★ "Remarkable. Absolutely sui generis." —Booklist, starred review

Without a word, The Wanderer presents one little paper boat's journey across the ocean, past reefs and between icebergs, through schools of fish, swaying water plants, and terrifying sea monsters. The little boat is all alone, and while its aloneness gives it the chance to wonder at the fairy-tale world above and below the waves, that also means it must save itself when it storms. And so it does.

Readers young and old will find the strength and inspiration in this quietly powerful story about growing, learning, and life's ups and downs.
