When little Ali is washed out to sea on his home-made raft, who would have thought his life would be saved by a passing oil tanker? Gradually the boy learns about life aboard Star of Arabia: the surveillant crow, the welcoming crew and the kind Captain who takes him under his wing as the ship sails down through the Suez Canal.
