One WishBook - 2004
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.
