KIRKUS REVIEW

This surrealistic little fantasy, meant for the imaginative child who need not always ask why and how, tells of a little boy's dreams and discovery of the sea. Down he goes, beyond the pale green surface to the ""golden forests of seaweed and swaying branches of green"" soon to realize a great sense of loneliness in a world that can never be his. But the sea lets him go and for the first time he hears the sounds of the land. Meanings will emerge in relation to the child's experience and feelings, but few children will remain unmoved by the soft magical quality of this lovely mood story.
