Eileen Ferriter tells the story through a parent's wisdom, using a spoken rhythmic flow to make the book come to life. She uses colors and patterns in the illustration that would visually captivate the young readers and imagery to let older audiences in on the adventure and compel them to think beyond the seas and look at all the unimagined places beckoning them closer.
