1. Kalifax (1999): Kalifax is a magical, allegorical trip through the Northwest Passage: a dazzling fantasy tale about a brave crew attempting to sail north to the eaves of the world, fighting snow-goblins and finding Grandfather Frost, all the while guided by the magical legend of Kalifax. The Captain wants to sail his ship, the Volantix, to the other side of the West, into spice winds and lazy islands that bloom like summer flowers. He'll have to take his crew under the rifters of the sky, past strange squeaking beasts, and through narrow icy seas. None of the sailors want to go, until Tom tells them the story of Kalifax, the magical elfin torch that burns brighter as danger gets greater, and will always keep you warm.
Trapped in the ice, the crew encounters the fearsome snow-goblins and ice-trolls. All looks grim until Grandfather Frost himself appears, down from the very roof of the world to see to their keep.
2. Captain Jenny & the Sea of Wonders (2001): Jenny helped Tom take his Kalifax voyage, but she's always wanted to captain a ship and have an adventure of her own. Then an otter with a golden collar pops up beside her little boat, to tell her of her quest for the Lost City, sunk beneath the waves in the Sea of Wonders Found and Forgotten. Jenny is soon on her way.
Jenny must fight for herself every step of the way--fight to understand the impudent otter messenger, fight for the respect of her crew, fight the sea pirate Corsairs who would capture and enslave them all. To reach her goal will take all the wits and all the courage she can ever imagine having. Can she overcome all obstacles and reach the sunken city as it rises to the surface for the first time in 100 years? Can she prevent it from once again slipping beneath the waves? Should she?
3. The Star-Glass (2003): Tom and Jenny seek the fate of the elves who fled west many years earlier. They take with them the crew from both previous voyages as well--the Captain, the First Mate, Cookie, the two sailors with blue hoods. They also take the young, annoying boy Gimlet, who has a nose for trouble and a young boy's heart, both faint and curious. Once again, they experience many natural wonders and encounter striking peoples--some welcoming and eager to help, others who are less than thrilled with the newcomers. Their quest for the fate of the elves bears fruit, although not in the manner they might have hoped. Tom's Starglass, acquired on his Kalifax journey, provides an important link to the past they are attempting to discover. Their journey culminates in a fight for their lives against a mysterious and bloodcurdling foe, a fight they won't all survive.
