After constructing a grand ship built from parts of the Castle, Celie, Lilah and Rolf are ready to set sail! But on its maiden voyage, the Ship steers them far off course into uncharted waters. Celie and her sister, Lilah, hope that the Ship is heading to the ancient island where unicorns once roamed, but as the journey grows longer and supplies run low, they could be in trouble. Can Celie and her family trust the Ship just as they’ve always trusted the Castle?
The castle! As a ship! Genius! Add an ancient island and unicorns into the mix and it’s pretty much perfect. However, not so perfect: in the course of looking up information to review this book, I realized that I have not read the previous book, Fridays with the Wizards. No wonder I was so confused. Now I need to reread the whole series again. Fun!
