  1. Too bad that summer has to end. PS. I read a very nice book review of your latest publication in last Sunday's New York Times Book Review Children's section. Kudos!

  3. The mast appears to be a lifeline for the ailing ship.

  5. Now I've sort of noticed those wrapped boats before, but never poetically, as you saw them...
