A Boy Asked the Wind
Age Range: 8 - 11
A spectacular picture book, with text in subtly linked beautifully composed four-line stanzas, evoking winds around the world, including those in the Canadian west, off the coast of Central America, Capetown, and the Middle East.
The illustrations are muscular, organic, powerful evocations of the power of those winds.
