Liam loved his father’s stories of life at sea. But one day, his father’s ship doesn’t return, and Liam’s love of stories fades. Then the Traveler, a mysterious old man who spins stories with a magical beard like a tapestry, arrives, reminding Liam of his father. They embark on the Traveler’s final voyage together, and before the journey ends, the Traveler passes on his magical gift to Liam.

Woven with themes of loss, discovery, and friendship, this poignant tale captures the unexpected magic of shared stories and refound hope.
