Once there was a river, a broad, blue river, that ran swift and strong to the sea.

And once there was a girl named Polly, who saw a sturdy old boat named Sunflower sink on that river. But as the years passed, the river...and dirt...and birds...and seeds helped create Sunflower Island out of the skeleton of the wrecked ship.

Polly watched while the river

Overview

Once there was a river, a broad, blue river, that ran swift and strong to the sea.

And once there was a girl named Polly, who saw a sturdy old boat named Sunflower sink on that river. But as the years passed, the river...and dirt...and birds...and seeds helped create Sunflower Island out of the skeleton of the wrecked ship.

Polly watched while the river created the island, and she also saw its death, when river swept it out to sea. Her family listened to the story countless times over the years, and now you will hear it, too.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
Long ago a little girl named Polly watched from the window as a ship sank into the river. Years passed, and dirt and seeds covered the skeleton of the wrecked Sunflower, forming an island. Polly watched the river create the island, and then eventually witnessed its death as, many years later, the river swept it out to sea. She told the story to her children and grandchildren, and this poetic version is wonderfully illustrated with vivid, dreamlike paintings.
