Reviews
"An unusually funny read-aloud for Christmas." - Booklist

"Shannon's irresistible illustrations show David's emotions careening from hope to anticipation to sadness to joy, with a masterful use of perspective keeping the reader on the same emotional level with the little boy. The touching final page shows David clutching his new fire truck and a note from Santa, with Mom's protective arm around him as always." - Kirkus

"Emotions are easily conveyed, from David's hyper anticipation, to his very real fear that maybe his behavior makes him unworthy of Santa's attention, to the comforting and blissful endpage." - School Library Journal

ILLUSTRATOR EVENT: Jim LaMarche & The Sea of Sleep

Otters Join illustrator Jim LaMarche on one of this Winter appearances in support of The Sea of Sleep.

About the book
Baby Otter is sleepy after a long day of play. Now he cuddles in his mama's arms as calm, silvery waters rock him gently toward sleep.

But there are many wondrous things to see before he gets there. They drift past leaping dolphins and schools of swimming fish. And there's the loving, beaming moon, who rests her friendly face on the water's sparkling surface. All the while, jewel-like stars light their way as they glide through the night toward morning.

Warren Hanson's mesmerizing voyage into the nighttime sea and Jim LaMarche's spectacular, affecting paintings create the kind of cozy, stirring images that will live for a lifetime in the reader's heart and imagination.
