A young albatross finds safety with Tommy amid the vast waters beginning a relationship that would last across time.Through growing up on an island with natives terrified of cosmic forces to further tragic adventures on doomed vessels of the sea and a life immersed in death beyond the shadows and living as a hermit for 150 years with only a mind of tortured memories...Tommy shares his story with a young man who happens to be a distant descendant and the dark spell over him is broken. The author thought that Coleridges Rime Of The Ancient Mariner would be a sure-fire winner for students years ago. He was fascinated with the visual masterpiece and he has finally come up with this adaptation based on the original poem. A classic for a new generation of readers and a revitalised enthusiasm that the story will find the reception it deserves. A classic retelling of a wonderful poem and given such fresh passion for new readers well done and shall make sure my children know this tale as I am sure generations to come will also...
