The first thing you will notice about this book is the dramatic and beautiful illustrations. On the cover you see the green eyed, black haired girl hugging a book and dreaming about tropical fish. She has a captivating expression.

The story begins with this little princess having a tantrum. Although the king and queen try their best to make her happy and the people of the court provide much unsolicited advice, no one can calm the little princess. There is no way around it. The princess wants to “know the sea.”

Everyone tries in humorous and disappointing ways to bring the sea to the little princess. Finally, Peter brings her all the books she would ever need to learn all there is about the ocean. The Princess is happy. Then, the day comes when she leaves to become a mariner.

This original story by Gilbert has the authentic ring of a fairy tale. Children will keep reading to find out what crazy scheme will be introduced and if the Princess ever meets the sea. The vocabulary is rich, sometimes lyrical, without slowing the pace.

The pages are filled with intriguing pictures that will slow the reader down to enjoy the gorgeous detail.

I love that the Princess stays true to herself and becomes a sailor. This is definitely a book I would happily give to a child, especially to a girl who might need encouragement to fulfill her own dreams.

I so enjoyed this book. The story is original and based on a little girl, Isola,and her wish to know the sea. She is so unhappy in her mountain kingdom that several young men attempt, although unsuccessfully , to bring the sea to her.

This little princess, Isola, perseveres in her quest and at first it seems no one can help. Then one day a sailor, Peter,brings books and opens up a wonderful world of the sea to Isola. He relates his experiences and she finally leaves the mountain top kingdom to ride a ship and experience the sea.

I thought it interesting the author named the little girl Isola which means island in Italian. Also that she chose Peter as her sea teacher, as he was a famous fisherman.

You will delight in the illustrations. Rhett Ransom Pennell clearly shows us the emotions of all the characters and especially the frustration of Isola and her parents as she seeks the knowledge she so yearns to understand.

I believe both the adult reading this book and the child who is fortunate enough to listen to it, will find ways to identify with the characters and the timeless story about seeking knowledge and of course the patient and loving teacher who relays the information.

It is a new fairy tale you will read often!

Rarely do we see a children's story of this quality. This book sings. From it's feisty little heroine, its charmingly illustrated characters, and its clever turn-around of an old theme,the book dances through the story of Isola, the little princess who wants to escape her royal destiny and go out into the world. The message is an empowering one for girls and a sly poke at the traditional handsome young man solution to girls' problems. The book is a great read aloud for young children. It is also a wonderful vehicle for older students to examine the writer's craft.
