And ‘Sea Change‘ is no different in that respect.
From the critically acclaimed illustrator comes an almost unexpected, overwhelmingly emotive read.
All of his friends were looking forward to what summer had in store, sleepovers, drive-in movies and rope-swings, but not Eliot. Eliot is being sent to a remote village in Nova Scotia for the summer by his parents.
But despite his worst fears, he grows to love this place he never wanted to visit in the first place.
Executed so creatively, making the most of shape, space and form. It’s unlike any other book we’ve ever seen. The composition of this book alone is a sight to behold.
With clever use of words, line and images, the marriage between the two becomes inseparable.
And once the novelty of the unusual placement of text and pictures wears off, it becomes second nature to see them intertwined on the page, making us question why more books are not delivered in this engaging and accessible format.
A heart-wrenching story that’s crying out to be devoured by young readers. A perfect transition from picture books to chapter books, this illustrated novel will have even the most reluctant readers engaged. It’s a total triumph!
