I’ve got clear bottles, green and brown, sea blue, sky blue, black and golden amber. Tall ones, thin ones, fat and squat, towers, skittles, teardrops that won’t stand on end, long necks, broken necks, necks with marbles rattling inside. They come round-sided, square-sided, even six-sided, in smooth glass, fluted glass, or frosted by the waves. Lots are embossed with words or pictures: a rat, a cross, a face. Sometimes this tells you what was in the bottle (the rat means rat poison), others, like BLOOD MIXTURE, are mysteries. There are experts who could label each one, but I like not knowing. It’s more fun to pretend they were Prospero’s potions than to be told I’ve found a bottle of Victorian hair tonic.
The Storm Bottle Swimming with dolphins is said to be the number one thing to do before you die. For 12-year-old Michael, it very nearly is. A secret boat trip has gone tragically wrong, and now he lies unconscious in hospital. But when Michael finally wakes up, he seems different. His step sister Bibi is soon convinced that he is not who he appears to be. Meanwhile, in the ocean beyond Bermuda’s reefs, a group of bottlenose dolphins are astonished to discover a stranger in their midst – a boy lost and desperate to return home. Bermuda is a place of mysteries. Some believe its seas are enchanted, and the sun-drenched islands conceal a darker past, haunted with tales of lost ships. Now Bibi and Michael are finding themselves in the most extraordinary tale of all.
