 When Erin visits the attic of her grandfather's country house, she is enchanted by the discovery of an old doll packed in a brass-hinged wooden box. Her grandfather allows her to keep it when she promises to take good care of the precious find. But late at night, Erin is awakened by the wind and drawn out of the house on a mysterious, sea-bound adventure, with the doll tucked safely under her arm. Alone at sea, she meets another little girl and learns the name and history of the beautiful doll. The highly colored, expressionistic illustrations are sure to dazzle, although a story that appears to encourage solo midnight boat trips may be one that will give parents pause. (Picture book. 4-6)
