Waterstones Says

Brimming with nostalgia and atmosphere, this beautifully illustrated picture book tells a warmhearted tale of the bustling and caring community of a tiny fishing village.

Longlisted for The Yoto Carnegie Medal for Illustration 2023

A lyrical, richly illustrated storybook about community and family - set against the backdrop of a seaside fishing village.

If you keep walking over the hills and across the fields, you will come to the edge, where the land meets the sea. And on this edge lies a village. This is my home.

A young boy watches the grown-ups in his village go about their work. Everyone is busy: the blacksmith, the boat-builder, the baker. But most important of all, he thinks, are the fishermen who bring in the catch. The boy's father is a baker, but he wants to be a daring fishermen when he grows up, brave enough to sail through stormy seas. He asks his father, "Have you ever been to sea?"

An atmospheric look at a traditional way of life, and a timeless reminder that everyone is important, no matter how seemingly small their role.
