Favorite kids book of all time. Beautiful writing as well as illustration, capturing the wonder of a childhood summer in Maine.

This tale of a summer cottage in Penobscot Bay in Maine truly is a tale of wonder. It is a story I have reread many times because of the fond childhood memories it evokes.
