Joanne Schwartz: Town is by the Sea, illustrated by Sydney Smith
"Far out to sea the waves have white tips. And deep down under that sea, my father is digging for coal".
From the illustrator of Footpath Flowers and the author Joanne Schwartz, comes this reflective and slow-paced book about life in a mining town. This book thoughtfully explores generations and a sense of place, with beautifully atmospheric illustrations. A perfect gift for a father or son.
This book is shortlisted for this year's Kate Greenaway medal, one of the most prestigious prizes for children's illustration.
