WHERE THE SEA MEETS THE SKY is stunningly illustrated by talented debut artist Riko Sekiguchi, winner of the 2018 Carmelite Prize for student illustrators, for which Hachette Children’s Books originally commissioned the story.
Sophie the sea otter’s mum says that no one can reach the horizon, and no one should try. But Sophie reckons the horizon doesn’t look that far! The brave little sea otter sets off on an exciting journey, meeting all sorts of sea creatures on the way – walruses and whales, lobsters and starfish . . . and someone a little more dangerous . . …
“Celebrating curiosity, bravery and adventure, this stunning book takes baby otter Sophie on a thrilling journey through the underwater world as she tries to find the answer to the question, ‘What’s at the place where the sea meets the sky?’ The change of light as the day fades into night is especially beautiful and the seascapes, bubbling with life, will captivate for hours.” – Sally Morris, Daily Mail, UK.
“A brilliant rhyming story about being brave and becoming independent even though mum isn’t far behind. This sweet tale is ideal for sharing together, and little ones will love the cute and colourful images of Sophie’s underwater world.” – Scottish Book Trust, top ten new picture books for summer 2020.
