'Grandpa, tell me the story again of when we went to sea. That’s a BIG story, One-Button.

How does it begin? It begins with the uprooting . . .'

And so Grandpa tells the story of how he and One-Button and their whole community were uprooted from their everyday lives, and how they all had to take to sea in different boats. Until one day everything changed, and they were able to return home and resume their previous lives…different, but the same.
