My Life with the Wave
My first trip to the seashore,
one wave tore away from the sea.
She caught my hand, and we raced
away together across the sand.
Based on a story by Nobel Prize laureate Octavio Paz, this delightful tale of a boy and his pet wave is charmingly retold with beautiful new illustrations. See if you can find the hidden cat, dog, mouse, whale, and sea horse in almost every picture!
