*****





IN A VILLAGE BY THE SEA,
by Muon Van, illustrated by April Chu; Creston Books (2015)



Lyrical text complemented by colorful, evocative imagery.












A circular tale of a family in a Vietnamese fishing village awaiting the safe return of the husband and father. We are moved through the story by the family dog and the magical painting cricket beneath the floorboards.
