The Fan Bros are at it again, and this one may have topped the Night Gardener.

Summer 2018 Kids Indie Next List


“The Fan brothers have created a magical dream world that readers will want to return to over and over again. Each illustration begs the reader to pore over its details and imagine the possibilities such a world could hold. Finn’s journey to honor his grandfather is one of the best picture book journeys I’ve ever been on.  ”
— Erin Barker Yourstone, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

Description


“Young readers will be captivated.” —The Washington Post

From the creators of the gorgeous bestseller The Night Gardener, comes a stunning new picture book about a young boy who sets sail to find a place his grandfather told him about…the spot where the ocean meets the sky.

It’s a good day for sailing.

Finn lives by the sea and the sea lives by him. Every time he looks out his window it’s a constant reminder of the stories his grandfather told him about the place where the ocean meets the sky. Where whales and jellyfish soar and birds and castles float.

Finn’s grandfather is gone now but Finn knows the perfect way to honor him. He’ll build his own ship and sail out to find this magical place himself!

And when he arrives, maybe, just maybe, he’ll find something he didn’t know he was looking for.

Praise For…

*** "Meticulous draftsmanship by the Fan brothers (The Night Gardener) gives the spreads genuine majesty...the artists imagine not a general, one-size-fits-all afterlife, but one that Finn and his grandfather share—and one that readers will feel privileged to share with them."
