Time of Wonder

Awarded the Caldecott Medal as "The most distinguished American picture book of 1958," Time of Wonder is the classic story of a never-to-be forgotten summer, here produced from reoriginated plates to capture all the beauty of Mr. McCloskey's original illustrations.
Among the islands of Maine you'll find all that children and about the sea, the shore, and quiet forests beyond, as well as the excitement of preparations for a hurricane and the wonder of exploring the trunks, upper limbs, and giant trees felled by the storm.
As The Horn Book wrote, " The author has succeeded in transferring his love for the Maine Islands to the printed page and as you listen to his words and look at his pictures you feel every day and every season is a 'time of wonder.' This is a [book] of great beauty."
