With the words of England's great romantic poet as their stepping stone, award-winning poet P.K. Page and celebrated artist Vladyana Krykorka enter the magical, mystical world of a child's imagination in a book that will live in the reader's memory long after the final page has been turned.
Handsomely bound and designed for gift giving, A Grain of Sand was originally written for an oratorio by the renowned choral master and composer Dr. Derek Holman and first performed in Toronto during that city's celebration of the new millennium.
Vladyana Krykorka's brilliant watercolors join the poet's words in perfect harmony, as
... a child on a beach on a summer's day
With time to idle the hours away
In the tiniest grain of sand can see
A limitless world of mystery
