    I liked this book a lot. The whimsical steampunk-ish illustrations are brimful of charming details that could keep any adult or child reader engrossed for hours -- a truly inspired mix of whale, fish, bird, and ship imagery. The story is an ambitious blend of light and heavy, realistic...

    Four stars for the text (it?s not so much of a story but more of a dream journey) and five shining stars for the stunning illustrations! I?m turning into a huge fan of The Fan Brithers. ...

    Each year my family reads all the Goodreads-award-nominated picture books. This is book #16 (of 20) of 2018, one of the books where I look like an old curmudgeon compared to my family, who largely loved this book which is about kid wanting to see his Grandpa again and imagining his way...

    I loved the Fan Brothers' work in Dashka Slater's The Antlered Ship. I think I love this book -- which the brothers wrote as well as illustrated -- even more. It's rich and allusive; kids will most likely see it as a story about adventure, and adults will recognize it as a story about ...

    Wyatt was reading this to Kait in Panera and commented that it started out a bit dark. And that?s fair. If you have a child grieving the loss of a grandparent or other relative, I think this book would be an excellent way to start a discussion about feelings and acts of remembran...
