A little girl sails her raft across a sea of words, arriving at the house of a small boy and calling him away on an adventure.

Through forests of fairy tales and across mountains of make-believe, the two travel together on a fantastical journey that unlocks the boy’s imagination.

Now a lifetime of magic and adventure lies ahead of him . . . but who will be next?
