River Story

Front Cover
Candlewick Press, 2000 - Juvenile Fiction - 29 pages
Fluid text and graceful illustrations tell the age-old story of a river -- from its source, a mountain spring, to its end as it streams into the sea. As it moves, the river grows in size and strength, gushing and slowing. Cows come to drink at its banks, sharp hooves sinking in sticky mud. Fish dart among bottles and treasures. City traffic moves over and under and around it while barges, ferries, and tough little tugs ride its changing tides. A dynamic portrait, River Story invites children to think, feel, and imagine as it follows a river on its ancient course.
