My first trip to the seashore,
one wave tore away from the sea.
She caught my hand, and we raced
away together across the sand.
Based on a story by Nobel Prize laureate Octavio Paz, this delightful tale of a boy and his pet wave is charmingly retold with beautiful new illustrations. See if you can find the hidden cat, dog, mouse, whale, and sea horse in almost every picture!
Ages 3 – 8
A boy creates his own endless summer when he brings home a wave from the family's beach vacation in this fantasy based on a story by Nobel laureate Paz. "Paired with the expert text," said PW in a starred review, "Buehner's larger-than-life depictions of the free-spirited wave sweep readers away to their own imaginary shores." Ages 3-8. (Mar.)
