In this beautiful testament to wondering, a young girl gazes out to where the water meets the sky and wonders what lies beyond the waves. Boats filled with toys? Skyscrapers filled with people?

In this celebration of imagination's power, young readers will find joy in the mystery of the faraway, the unknown, and the just-beyond.
