Marco the fox has a lot of questions, like: how deep does the sun go when it sinks into the sea? And why do birds have such lizardy feet? But none of the other foxes share his curiosity. So when a magnificent ship adorned with antlers arrives at the dock looking for a crew, Marco volunteers hoping to find foxes who are as inquisitive as he is and answers to his questions. The crew finds adventure and intrigue on their journey. And, at last, Marco finds the answer to his most important question of all: What's the best way to find a friend you can talk to?
A wonderful tale filled with adventure, friendship, curiosity and bravery.
