The Fool and the Flying Ship
Eric Metaxas, Henrik Drescher
(Rabbit Ears Entertainment, May 19, 2013)
Long ago in Russia, a proclamation went out through all the land that whosoever could build a flying ship would win the hand of the Tsar’s daughter. But when a country bumpkin and his oddball crew of extraordinary friends show up to claim her, the dumbfounded Tsar quickly has second thoughts.
