If you whisper a secret into a wooden statue’s ear, will anyone find out? Can a wobbly weathervane bearing the image of Saint Crispin, the patron saint of shoemakers, steer a love-struck apprentice toward the girl of his dreams? And if a ghost hires a sculptor to carve a likeness of him holding a drink to a baby’s lips, what ghastly crime might lie behind his request?

    " Wonderful tales of the dangers of worshipping idols. The stories have a wondrous progression, yet I found the Binnacle Boy to be stupendously crafted with a clever plot, that's how the book opens up. The overall content seems mature for any grade younger than the sixth. "
