5 Maps for The Girl From Everywhere!...

— feeling big smile
The Girl from Everywhere - Heidi Heilig

This is a very ingenious and magical story about a girl named Nixie, her father- Captain Slate, their crew- Kashmir, Rotgut & Bee, their ship the Temptation, and their very special maps. With the right maps and a really good "navigator" they can sail to any time or any place, real or imagined! 

 

Wouldn't that be lovely? I know I would hop on that ship any day! Since we haven't reached that level of capability yet unfortunately, I'm very happy to have come across this wonderful series to somewhat satiate my wanderlust. But sailing across time isn't the only high point of this story, it's also rich in myths, legends & world history and features a diverse crew of characters that will leave their mark on you. I can't wait to sail the high seas with the Temptation & its crew in their next adventure, The Ship Beyond Time!
