I want to rest inside a sunrise dream
an endless stretch of sea and sand and foam
I want to go
go where butterflies dance like children

Apples and Butterflies is a gentle, lyrical poem about a family''s autumn vacation and shows Prince Edward Island in a light we don''t often see-the bright blue and orange light of fall. Tamara Thiébaux-Heikalo''s rich and wild illustrations build a narrative with the text, showing us the family beachcombing, flying kites, and picking apples. Shauntay Grant''s award-winning poetry makes the reader long to go with her, and conveys the wide-open space of the island, where you can

breathe air that tastes like apples:
red
ripe
and ready for picking.
