    1. The day the antlered ship arrived, Marco wondered about the wide world.When I first picked up this book, I thought I had already read it But no, I was confusing it for another book about animals that explore on a ship The Friend Ship You wouldn t think animals exploring on a ship would be a theme, but apparently it is quite common.In this book, our hero, Marco the fox, is very curious about the world He is full of questions about it, but the other foxes are only concerned about stuff like food.S [...]

    2. Take any number of picture books published in a given year Read them all, cover to cover Digest them Ponder them Then, I have no doubt, you ll want to sort them You ll want to categorize them in some way Maybe it ll be the same rote categorizations we see all the time Maybe you ll get a little goofy You may, for example, begin to notice how many books involve bespectacled mice breaking down the fourth wall, or a plethora of sentient cheese But if you take a step back and broaden the fields a lit [...]

    3. Love love love the illustrations and that this is a real smart kids book It has adorable characters, was honest about what a fox would do on a ship with a bunch of herbivores hint, he didn t eat them , and even posed a lot of questions to the reader My only issue is the texture of the dust jacket Oh I can t stand that gritty feeling one iota.

    4. The Antlered Ship is one of the most beautifully illustrated books I have come across in a while This sweet story features a curious fox who seeks answers to many big questions Together with his unlikely group of animal friends they embark on a wondrous adventure Each page is an artwork to be explored on its own and the quality of the overall book and paper is stunning.

    5. The Antlered Ship is a perfect combination of lovely story and beautiful illustrations I m not sure what a child would think of it as my children are grown, but it s the kind of book I want to recommend to everyone I know Sometimes I think children s books are written for adults, but this is one that I think children and grownups will love.

    6. The illustrations here are beautifully done The story, however, is quite poignant This is a ship of rogue animals in search of adventure, beauty, answers Marco, a fox, decides the answers to his questions are out in the world He can t be confined to his island any longer, so he boards the ship.What the animals learn are lessons in kindness, boldness and friendship.There are questions Marco has that my daughter and I enjoyed finding the answers to while reading the book.

    7. When a fox needs answers to his questions he joins the antlered ship that is looking for a crew Will he find the answers while he goes on an adventure This book is really nicely illustrated and I really really love the design of the antlered ship view spoiler There is even a part where they fight pirates by lowering the ships antlers hide spoiler This book has some nice creativity and lots of work put into it visually I wish it was a little longer and maybe had some story Ashley

    13. Beautifully illustrated by The Fan Brothers, I m guessing this will be on many Mock Caldecott lists It seems we are all on a journey, one that can be adventurous at times, and also not as we always expect This is the story of animals on a quest to find answers to the questions in their hearts.

    14. The artwork is mesmerizing.The text has it s moments, but the ending isn t as satisfying as I feel it could be still quite wonderful.

    15. RATING 4 STARS Review Not on Blog Marco the fox has many questions about the world but finds that the other foxes could care less how deep the sun sinks into the sea Marco gathers a few other animals to sail with him on his antlered ship and find other foxes as curious as him, and hopefully some answers to his questions.The Fan Brothers are absolutely amazing with their artwork I would read anything that they illustrated Slater s story was also entertaining Highly recommend this book.

    16. The story is a bit too precious for me but I love the illustration style It is quite beautiful with rich detail I think it might not be eligible for Caldecott because the illustrators are Canadian.

    17. Stunning illustrations and a beautifully told story about the big questions in life and adventures that help find the answers.

    18. Caldecott Read I am blown away by this book The illustrations and imagination behind it are simply remarkable.

    19. This is the most beautiful book I have experienced in a good long time A timeless story and illustrations the draw the emotions straight out of your heart.

    20. Questions, adventures, and friendship This is a book that everyone should read And I love Marco I would like for him to be my new best friend If every book I read in 2018 is as delightful as this one, it will be a most excellent year of reading.

    21. This is a pretty little philosophical adventure story with charming illustrations I have a feeling it might be magical to grown ups than to kids, but I could be wrong.

    22. I like this book a lot,because it s illustrations are so beautiful and because the book has so many details.

    23. We hope to hire a seaworthy crew, explained Sylvia, the captain I m afraid we aren t very good sailors Not sure how she became a captain then, but ok Marco the fox joins as does Victor the pigeon and his flock Welcome aboard, Captain Sylvia said We re going to a wonderful island, with tall, sweet grass and short, sweet trees When we get there, we ll eat a delectable dinner For a moment I was sure the deer had hatched an elaborate plan to lure victims onto their ship under the guise of needing a [...]

    24. I want to like this book as the illustrations are beautiful and the values it espouses are such good ones, but s missing something The text is too short with too many underdeveloped ideas and characters, plus there are things that happen, or are thought, for no reason I see the broader ideas of friendship, working together to get over a rough spot, tolerating and sacrificing, but perhaps all of these together are too much for one very short book JP

    25. Hoping to sate his curiosity about the world and find the answers to his many questions, an inquisitive fox joins a herd of deer and a flock of pigeons on a ship destined for adventure.A delightful blend of wit, charm, and life lessons.

    26. One fox has many questions to be answered Why do some songs make you happy and others make you sad Why don t trees ever talk How deep the sun go when it sinks into the sea Why is water so wet Do islands like being alone Do waves look like horses or swans And what s the best way to find a friend you can talk to Is it better to know what s going to happen Or better to be surprised These are the push to a life changing adventure through the sea As the waves, storms, rocks and pirates come and go, [...]
