Two friends find that shadows are all around them.

"My friend catches
my shadow's hand.
Hand in shadow
we walk the sand."

Dragonflies zip by with their shadows behind them. Toe shadows wiggle along the bottom of a creek. In the shadow of a tree lurks delicious cool shade.

On a long sunny day, two friends search for shadows and discover the hidden delights of the everyday world.

Lush, sun-soaked illustrations and poetic text capture the childhood delights of a summer day.

User Review  - Matthew - Goodreads
