    책 내용
    A young boy wakes up to the sound of the sea, visits his grandfather's grave after lunch and comes home to a simple family dinner, but all the while his mind strays to his father digging for coal deep down under the sea. Stunning illustrations by Sydney Smith, the award-winning illustrator of Sidewalk Flowers, show the striking contrast between a sparkling seaside day and the darkness underground where the miners dig.

    With curriculum connections to communities and the history of mining, this beautifully understated and haunting story brings a piece of history to life. The ever-present ocean and inevitable pattern of life in a maritime mining town will enthrall children and move adult readers.

    “My current studio is a converted garage in my backyard. It is fairly spacious and all mine. For the first time, I can play loud music if I want to ... I have three tables set up. One with stacks of paper, drawings, and drafts; one with art books, picture books, and my computer; and the third has paint, water and all my supplies. It’s a real mess, but I love it.

    We lost a dear friend and editor at Groundwood Books, Sheila Barry. She was a mentor to many of us authors and illustrators. Before she passed away, I was able to show her this book in its early stage. Afterward, finishing this story allowed me to process my loss. In many ways, I am the character in this book.”
