Summary
As planes darken the sky and cities burn in the ravages of war, a boy is sent away to the safety of a fishing village far from the front to stay with his grandmother. But their tranquility is shattered by the crash of a bullet-ridden enemy plane that brings the war--and someone else--to their doorstep. Grandmother's mysterious friend Mr. Girandole--who is far more than he seems--has appeared out of the night to ask for Grandmother's help in doing the unthinkable. In the forest near Grandmother's cottage lies a long-abandoned garden of fantastic statues. Hidden within is a riddle that has lain unsolved for centuries--a riddle that contains the only solution to their impossible problem. To solve it will require courage, sacrifice, and friendship with the most unlikely allies
