"What is the seashore like?" a little boy asks his mother. So she brings it to life for him. The seashore is a place where the sea and the sky are the same smoky gray until . . . the morning sun breaks through. The hot noonday sun feels warm as a big soft cat covering you. And it seems there is nothing in the world except the sound of the wind and the rising and falling song of the waves.--from the publisher
