The Fabulous Ship of Captain Squid
by Éric PUYBARET
A captain, having arrived to the end of his journey, tells his story... The sea is his life! How numerous the ships he's sailed are! When he was simply a sailor, he worked on many boats, each one more fabulous than the others... just like their captains! Captain Exocet, for example, a dreamer, extravagant, always with his head in the clouds and a lover of gliding above the whales.
Fats ones, frail ones, restless ones, quiet ones... all of them different but carried by the same dream: to find the most fabulous boat of all!
"My boat is marvelous, but I dream of a ship a thousand times more beautiful and I know it exists. It is out there somewhere, hooked to a to a reef, and there life is sweet and they sing night and day".
This book plunges us into the memories of captain Grizou. Each portrait of the ships that crossed their path - and their captains - is an ode, all in poetry and fantasy, to reverie and traveling.
