DESCRIPTION: Marco the fox is full of questions, questions none of his fellow foxes can answer... or want to. When the antlered ship arrives, he joins the peculiar crew of animals in search of adventure and new, green lands - but will those lands bring him answers, or more questions?

REVIEW: Another down time read at work, this one grabbed me with the unusual title and imaginative art. Marco and the other animals each have their own reasons for sailing on the antlered ship, and must learn to work together to get where they're going... a destination that may not be a physical place. An enjoyable tale.
