Publisher's Summary

When a boat drifts into a New England port with all its crew dead, only a shipboard statue knows what took place. Can a boy carved from wood reveal the secret? Can a love-struck apprentice find the girl of his dreams by following a weathervane with a figure of Saint Crispin, patron saint of shoemakers? After a lifetime of making statues of the wealthy and powerful, what will the Italian sculptor Zorelli do when he is hired not by a human, but a ghost?Paul Fleischman is the master of invention in books for young readers. In this new edition of his classic Newbery Honor-winning book, he gives listeners, readers, and writers a special gift. First he spins three spellbinding stories in which silent objects manage to communicate. Then, in a new afterword, he explains how he found his own voice.
