Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Lila, the narrator of this warm story, tells of her Grandpa, who ``had never been to school, but he was very wise. He could read the sea and the sky like most of us read books.'' Grandpa lives on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia and, for years, has fished from his small wooden boat, Fancy Lady . But when a new generation of fishermen using larger, more sophisticated boats begin robbing the sea of fish, the disheartened old man is forced to find another way of earning his livelihood. The discovery of a new business--seamoss farming--enables him to continue to work on the sea, the one place that makes him happy. Using gentle, poetic language and rich imagery, Lila shares with readers the many important ``things about the heart'' that Grandpa has taught her. Orr is a talented artist and an accomplished writer. Perfectly synchronized with the poignant text, her primitive, brilliantly hued pictures depict the many moods of the sea and the tropics. Ages 5-9. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- On the Caribbean island of St. Lucia lives an old fisherman who does things according to tradition and who does not wish to compete with the modern fishing boats. He is sad because he can no longer catch enough fish to earn a living. Then he comes up with the idea of farming sea moss on floating rafts. Once more he can return to the sea where he belongs. This quietly optimistic story is told with an air of authenticity and appreciation by a woman who has firsthand knowledge of Caribbean fisheries. Her primitive watercolor drawings glow with the lovely shades of aqua, green, blue, pink, and red so special to the islands. Not an exciting book, but a thought-provoking one that can open children to the man's philosophy that ``if we give back something for everything we take, we will always meet with abundance.'' --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, NY
