about

A little sister?s imagination takes wing on a summer day in one of four sweet books featuring four siblings.On a breezy summer day, Gretchen and her family head to the ocean. Gretchen wants to swim with her older brothers and sister, but everyone ignores her. When the wind steals her new sun hat, she catches it by its ribbon and is lifted into the sky, far, far above the beach, where a friendly seagull is happy to play. This ode to imagination is one of four small books each featuring a different sibling and season, created by children's book veteran R. W. Alley. Look for Mitchell on the Moon and Annabelle at the South Pole in Fall 2016.
R. W. Alley is the illustrator of many beloved books, including Because Your Daddy Loves You and its sequels, and the Paddington Bear picture book series. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island. Visit his website at www.rwalley.com .

The ink-and-watercolor illustrations, done in a pastel palette, display images of lighthouses, beach grass, and other flora along with Gretchen and her siblings, giving readers a vivid depiction of a coastal New England landscape. "
