KIRKUS REVIEW

 On the Maine island profiled here, year-round inhabitants spend the winter fishing, going to school, or crafting items to sell to next summer's visitors. Setting her cartoon-style people against the beautifully observed island and surrounding seascape, Gibbons includes a good selection of details about lobstering, local transportation and services, occupations and pastimes. Unusually attractive and informative. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4-8)
