Although I have enjoyed everything this talented pair have produced, from the aforementioned The Night Gardener, which they both wrote and illustrated, to The Antlered Ship, which they illustrated for author Dashka Slater, I think Ocean Meets Sky is the Fan Brothers' best work yet! Born in Illinois, he now lives in Toronto, near the shores of Lake Ontario, which he likes to imagine is the sea. I think the fantastical dreams (lovely, lovely illustrations) the boy has are influenced by the stories and conversations with his grandfather. A boy who misses his grandpa goes off on an fantastic boat ride to find the place his grandfather often spoke of, where the ocean meets the sky. Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do.

The whimsical steampunk-ish illustrations are brimful of charming details that could keep any adult or child reader engrossed for hours -- a truly inspired mix of whale, fish, bird, and ship imagery. But building is hard work, so Finn falls asleep afterwards, and his dreams take him to all sorts of wondrous places.He would have been ninety if he was still around, and in his honour, Finn builds a boat for a journey they had planned together. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. On the day his grandfather would have been ninety, Finn builds himself a ship and sets sail to find that place, mentioned many times by his elderly relative, where the ocean meets the sky.

Finn remembers the stories his grandfather told him about – a place where the ocean meets the sky, where whales and jellyfish soar and birds and castles float. In the end, his mother affectionately wakes him up for dinner; though he is never able to reunite with his grandfather in the way he most desires, he is sustained in his bereavement by the power of imagination and the loving presence of his family. One part of the creative team - with his brother Terry Fan - known collectively as the Fan Brothers. This is a gorgeous, fantastical story of the enduring bond of a child and his grandfather and a dreamy glimpse of what might lay beyond.

From the creators of the gorgeous bestseller "The Night Gardener" comes a stunning new picture book about a young boy who sets sail to find a place his grandfather told him aboutEthe spot where the ocean meets the sky. You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods. They would also only drop off a case of books and leave us to run it – it was so lovely to have you on hand to chat to the children and recommend them books, as well as the small (but appreciated!
