One day, Isobel and Nicholas discover a strange-looking boat wreck on the beach. They clamber in, and begin their great adventure. Together with Simona, a wounded stork, they soar through the sky in their sailing boat and see a world that has lost its way -- a girl being bullied, a weak child forced to work, a boy who can barely breathe in a polluted city, a mother and her baby trapped in a war zone. At each place, the children stop to help, and soon the boat is full of their new friends. Soon they must find a place to land where they can build a bigger and better sailing boat, and continue on their humanitarian mission.… (more)
