Children will delight in the story of a young girl who goes with her family to visit her grandparents who live on an island out in the deep blue sea. Memories of lazy days on the beach, playing pirates, and eating fish soup are recalled as the girl's family tells her what it was like to grow up on the island. * An evocative book about families, the pleasures of seeing grandparents who live far away and hearing stories about parents' younger days. * Simple concise text, filled with humour and thoughtfulness. * Boldly illustrated with Manya's trademark colourful pallette and large swirling brushstrokes. Sure to catch young readers' attention. * Manya's first book, Rain, was selected by the New York Times as one of the Best Children's Books of 2000. Rain was also nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award in 2001
