Boy and the Sea



ISBN: 9781419749407 Category:

Camille Andros


A picture book meditation on curiosity, wonder, and finding one’s way

In this lyrical picture book, readers follow one boy through his life as he returns to the seashore beside his home. The boy likes to think, and his thoughts turn into questions. He brings these questions to the sea. At times, he thinks he can hear the sea whisper to him: Dream. Love. Be.

So he does. He dreams-a young boy imagining all that he might do. He loves-a teenager, reaching out from a lonely place to make friends. He allows himself to just be-now grown, sharing the seashore with his daughter.
A celebration of quiet curiosity, The Boy and the Sea invites readers to ask questions and live their way into the answers.
