Margaret has a brave heart. She dreams of adventure and longs to travel to distant lands, so when a tall ship appears in the harbor, headed north to the Kingdoms of the Cold, Margaret won't be left behind.
But adventures are perilous things. Soon Margaret must face a ferocious sea serpent and even worse dangers. And she must discover the truth about an old woman with strange powers and mysterious plans, or she'll never find a way to bring herself and her true love safely home.
"Done in vivid, fiery colors, flashier than those usually associated with traditional folklore, the full-page pastel illustrations give the overall effect of vigor and great drama. A surefire hit for storytimes, this is just plain good fun for fans of fairy tales and hero quests alike." -- School Library Journal
