Description

Lila and her grandpa live on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, where Grandpa works as a fisherman. When huge boats begin to rob the sea of its fish, Grandpa has to find another way to make a living. Lila has a special relationship with her grandpa. From him she learns the ways of the sea and of the heart. Grandpa believes that "if we give back something for everything we take, we will always meet with abundance." Following his seaman's heart and guided by his respect for the sea, Grandpa realizes another way to make living. Katherine Orr has created a gentle island tale of the Caribbean, enhanced by vivid, tropical illustrations. Children and adults alike will cherish this book for years to come.
