Evelyn Wang’s Harriet’s Home at Sea is a diamond in the rough among children’s storybooks. Mrs. Wang has created a visual and textual masterpiece that is unlike any other book for early readers.The meticulous dedication to detail and quality that went into the production of the story is evident in all 92 pages and 45 hand-drawn color illustrations. A parent or guardian reading with their child will immediately be pleased with not only the elegant prose but the richness of the narrative. The beautifully written story is far more than a tale about the Great Barrier Reef and environmental responsibility. It addresses some of the major complexities in life that all of us must come to face in this world and how our values and virtues can safely guide us through these turbulent seas of challenges and uncertainties. Harriet’s Home at Sea is an emotionally arresting, thoughtful, and memorable adventure that any person of any age can relate to and will admire.
