The Puppets of Spelhorst

Shut up in a trunk by a taciturn old sea captain with a secret, five friends — a king, a wolf, a girl, a boy, and an owl — bicker, boast, and comfort one another in the dark. Individually, they dream of song and light, freedom and flight, purpose and glory, but they all agree they are part of a larger story, bound each to each by chance, bonded by the heart’s mysteries. When at last their shared fate arrives, landing them on a mantel in a blue room in the home of two little girls, the truth is more astonishing than any of them could have imagined.

From master storyteller Kate DiCamillo comes an original fairy tale, with enchanting black and white illustrations by Julie Morstad, in which five puppets confront circumstances beyond their control with patience, cunning, and high spirits. This magical and beautifully packaged gift volume, designed to be read aloud and shared, is a tale — first in a projected trilogy of stories linked by place and mood — that soothes and strengthens us on our journey, leading us through whatever dark forest we find ourselves in.
