Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
After a bright, but long day of munching red strawberries and splashing in the water, young turtle Sebastian heads for the warmth of home. As he cuddles next to his proud father to sleep, Sebastian coveys his vast, palatial dreams of future careers. Sebastian imagines colorful scenarios of his role in each profession--a firefighter, a kind pirate, and a deep-sea diver. Father turtle, curious and affirming, encourages each of his son's vivid descriptions. While gently conveying pride and confidence in his adventurous son, Father Turtle relates to his young child's dreams. Together, the inspired Sebastian and his loving Father share in the young turtle's fantasies of tomorrow. Peter Horn's book, dedicated to his son, Sebastian, is filled with the bittersweet wonder of a child and the earnest love of a parent. A heartwarming story, brought to life with rich colors in Christina Kadmon's exquisite illustrations. This book is an artful treasure for adult and child to share, a perfect bedtime story. 1999, North-South Books, Ages 4 to 8, $15.95 and $15.88. Reviewer: Adrian Kiger
