Ocean Meets Sky Reviews
Magical and stunningly beautiful, this picture book will speak to kids and their parents.
The Fan Brothers have done it again - another stunning picture book. This time it provides us with comfort after the loss of a loved one.
Young Finn builds a boat to honor his late grandfather, who spoke to him often about exploring the magical place where the ocean meets the sky. But building is hard work, so Finn falls asleep afterwards, and his dreams take him to all sorts of wondrous places. The artwork is the usual Fan brothers gorgeousness. I just wish it hadn't been a dream.
The Fan Brothers are back with another visually stunning picture book. Sweet and tender but full of magic.
First sentence: Finn lived by the sea, and the sea lived by him. "It's a good day for sailing," his grandfather would have said.
Premise/plot: On what would have been his grandfather's ninetieth birthday, a young boy dreams whimsically about the ocean meeting the sky. His grandfather was always telling stories about a magical place where the ocean met the sky.
