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.

The creators of THE NIGHT GARDENER have done it again. Their newest release, OCEAN MEETS SKY, is a stunning picture book about one boy's journey to find the place his grandfather always told him about. Captivating illustrations will make readers feels as though they're sailing along side Finn on his journey to find where the ocean meets the sky. 

This book is visually stunning. The whimsical illustrations alone make this book one that's worth picking up. The story itself is beautifully told. Finn's story will resonate with kids who are missing someone they love. This book is definitely on the top of my list of 2018 favorite picture books. I'm going to be shocked if this book doesn't win some kind of award.

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
