Ali lives with his great-grandmother in a tiny clay house at the edge of the desert. Just her and him. Just him and her. They don''t need anything more to be happy. But lately, Ali has begun to notice how his great-grandmother has aged. And one day, he asks if her life''s dreams have come true. All except one, she tells him. She had a dream to see the sea, but now she is too old to go. So, the next morning, Ali sets off with a pail in hand. He is going to make his great-grandmother''s final dream come true. He is going to bring the sea to her. The much-loved duo Ingrid Chabbert and Guridi have created a gorgeous intergenerational tale about devotion and dreams coming true at any age. The love Ali feels for his great-grandmother is universal, and children everywhere will recognize their own best selves in Ali''s heroic act of kindness. With the makings of a classic, this is one of those quiet stories that will stay with readers, young and old, long after they''ve put it down. Set in North Africa, it would make an excellent choice for a social studies lesson on exploring global cultures. It also works perfectly for character education lessons on compassion or courage.
Guridi has illustrated numerous book covers and children''s picture books. He lives in Spain.Ingrid Chabbert is a children''s author and graphic novel writer with dozens of books to her name. She lives in France.
