Codes presents the sights and sounds of Great Lakes shipping
in the late 1960s through seven-year-old Katy's story of hope and
determination. As a fierce ice storm rips through northern Minnesota,
Katy and her mother wait restlessly for her father's ship to return
to their harbor in Duluth.
Codes vividly combines historically based illustrations with
nautical terms and descriptions. Katy even creates her own secret
code to help bring her father home safely.
