The Antlered Ship

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Tae Fan Broth­ers

Marco the fox has a lot of ques­tions, like: how deep does the sun go when it sinks into the sea? And why do birds have such lizardy feet? But none of the other foxes share his cu­rios­ity.

So when a mag­nif­i­cent ship adorned with antlers and with a deer for a cap­tain ar­rives at the dock look­ing for a crew, Marco vol­un­teers, hop­ing to find foxes who are as in­quis­i­tive as he is that can an­swer his ques­tions. The crew finds adventure and in­trigue on their jour­ney. And, at last, Marco finds the an­swer to his most im­por­tant ques­tion of all: What’s the best way to find a friend you can talk to?
