The puppets of Spelhorst / Kate DiCamillo ; illustrated by Julie Morstad.

DiCamillo, Kate, (author.). Morstad, Julie, (illustrator.).

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.
