Annotation

This thought provoking book is set on a 17th century passenger ship that sails close to the Frozen Sea, where a fierce battle occurred. Words and sounds of the battle are frozen in the air. The spring warmth is starting to melt the ice, releasing the words into the air in a cacophony of frightening sounds. The last words in this picture book go off like fireworks leaving only one word in the sky, “Peace”.
