Product Details


In this debut by White, artwork in pencil and ink evokes an era when a community joined hands to secure its livelihood, a vision embraced by the narrator, who dreams of a future at sea. . . White’s tale pays witness to the importance of a community’s inter workings.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A love letter to a bygone era in coastal England. . . . Pencil-and-ink illustrations, rendered in a muted palette of blue, gray, white, and sepia, underscore the text’s nostalgic feel. . . . A toasty warm, sentimental read.
—Kirkus Reviews

Soft pencil-and-ink illustrations, mostly in graphite gray with blue and white highlights, vividly recreate a bygone time.

A palette of gray, blue, and yellow render stormy seas, sweeping hills, the busy dockside, and cozy village scenes with glowing windows in this love letter to the author’s childhood on the coast of Suffolk, England. . . This gentle tale of village life and the interdependence of a small community would make a calming bedtime story.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
