KIRKUS REVIEW

 A slight story about a sturdy woman who rows passengers and whatever else is needed to an island apparently off the coast of New England, with outstanding impressionistic doublespread illustrations that recall the evocative power of McCloskey's Time of Wonder (1957, Caldecott Medal), though not its range. Cavil: Pictorial details set the time now (and make the distance variable); the boat's lack of a motor is poetic, but unlikely. (Picture book. 3-7)
