Pearl of the Seas is an unput-downable tale of two children building a boat from a log they find buried in the sand, and sailing to far-off fantastic lands in a stormy sea-driven adventure with their faithful – but accident-prone – dog Holly.
There, they learn much wisdom from a king who, like God, has many names. After an incredible sacrifice of his dearest dream by the boy (now growing up) they return – another dream – to a family tea with their loved ones.
The tale is a prequel and companion to Ruth Finnegan’s award-winning epic romance Black Inked Pearl, here adapted for preteens but characterised by (in a simpler form) the same unique dream-like and enchanted style as in the original novel.
