There are three sweet, quiet, but adventure-filled stories: "Gospel Train," "The Wise Soldier of Sellebak," and "Sailing to Cythera."

In "Gospel Train," a young boy travels by a magic train with his cat.

"The Wise Soldier of Sellebak" is about a man who, as it says on the back of the back, "lost his memories and thirty years of his life. Anatole goes on a journey to help him. The soldier, Erik, explains, "It's the journeys we make for others that give us he power to change ourselves. he hardest part is getting home again, for you can't go home he way you left it."

In "Sailing to Cythera," Anatole goes through the wallpaper in Grandmother's home to a land where he meets Blimlim, a monster who turns out to be not so bad. ( )
