Jof is born in a crow's nest and possesses the sailor's craft, of knot tying. When a huge storm destroys his boat and leaves his parents working in a circus, Jof returns to the sea, learning from the greatest fisherman of all, Okinawa Yukio. Upon Yukio's death, he leaves everything to his pupil. But sometimes boats don't want to be given, and Jof is shipwrecked again, on an island with poor Nicholas. Together they begin the journey home, using knots to solve problems and a message in a bottle to remind him of the beautiful harpist, Eliza Turk.
"A zephyr of pure originality and lyricism flows through this work"—The Advertiser
