Secret of Old Zeb
Some dreams are too big to be kept in bottles.
Walter Higgins is a scrappy child with a great imagination, but he feels lost and not quite sure of himself when he is shipped off to Boston to visit his unknown Great Aunt Hortensia (“the Warden”).Walter is sure he is in for the worst summer ever. But then he befriends a mysterious neighbor, Old Zeb – a lonely, grizzled sailor who builds ships in bottles, and Old Zeb lets Walter in on the Great Secret Project. All summer Walter works faithfully on the Great Secret Project with Zeb and little by little, Old Zeb and Great Aunt Hortensia push him to realize his own dreams and discover the magic that can be released when one reaches for the stars.
New York Times best-selling author Carmen Agra Deedy delivers a magical and fun-filled story about the power of reaching for impossible dreams and everything that is accomplished along the way.
