Description

Winner of the Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Book Illustration, Halifax Regional Municipality (The Atlantic Book Awards)

“On a summer’s eve,
a long time ago,
I made one wish,
on the brightest star
in a twinkling night sky
I wished for a cottage by the sea
At the seaside, where our narrator lives, there sits a cottage “in a fragrant field of Queen Anne’s lace.” There is a porch to sunbathe on, a beach full of treasures waiting to be discovered, sandcastles are conquered by the incoming tide, and a young girl’s wish comes true.

Beautifully detailed, realistic, double-page illustrations make the ordinary extraordinary in this gentle picture book that is a memorable way to explore the seaside with even the youngest of readers.
