We receive the daily bookseller mailing "Shelf Awareness" to help us stay current with book news. Friday's edition had a great review of a recent picture book we're very excited about, Suzy Lee's The Wave. The review reads in part,
If it is possible to capture in book form a child's first flirtation with the sea, Lee (The Zoo) does it here. Because there are no words to describe that initiation, Lee uses none. Instead, her charcoal pencil depicts a girl on a vast beach running from her mother's side to the water's edge. . . In 40 wordless pages, Lee captures the fascination, awe and ongoing sense of wonder that the ocean inspires in each of us, no matter how old.The Wave is currently in our summer display -- we think you'll be as enchanted by it as we (and Shelf Awareness writers!) are.
