To See the Sea
2010 GLYPH AWARD WINNER
Children - Fiction
An energetic story with vibrant illustrations as the Gekkards journey to the sea. It is an amusing and educational tale that will teach readers a valuable lesson about the dangers of swimming in the sea.
Synopsis: The Gekkards are delighted when they receive a postcard from the ocean shore, until they discover the sender’s name is missing. Eager to solve the mystery, the Gekkards set out to see the sea. Along the way, they meet an exuberant crocodile who turns their journey into an adventure unlike any other. It is a story full of laughter and lessons learned about the mighty power of the sea.
Author's Note: This story originated from my experiences of growing up on the south shore of Lake Michigan. That Lake holds some great memories along with a few scary moments. The lesson in this book comes directly from one of my own personal experiences and I hope it will educate the reader that the sea requires great respect. A special thank you to my editor Nora Cohen for her extensive and insightful input on this story. It turned my work into a succinct and satisfying tale.
