She dreams of Sable Island
She goes there in her sleep
The fog comes softly to her
and she drifts across the deep.

Nova Scotia–based paper-doll artist Briana Corr Scott's first children's picture book explores the wilds of the childhood imagination and of the shape-shifting Sable Island.

Written as a gentle, lyrical poem, She Dreams of Sable Island is a wonderful read-aloud for bedtime, and a fact-filled exploration for curious readers who dream of adventuring to one of Nova Scotia's most remarkable—and untouched—landscapes. Includes an illustrated map of Sable Island, descriptions of flora and fauna found on the island, a paper doll and accessories—even a Sable Island horse!

Contributor Notes

Briana Corr Scott as born in Salem, MA, and grew up in New Hampshire. Her love of painting began early in life, and continued during her studies at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She moved to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, in 2006, where she lives with her husband and three young children. She now works from a home studio, and her paintings and poems are inspired by the natural world, particularly the Nova Scotia coast. She Dreams of Sable Island is her first book.
