Today is launch day for Whisper in the Wind! This is a new book by Claire Saxby, illustrated by moi. I really really love Claire’s layered text, which builds – all set in the ocean at night (which I found super hard to do but also a wonderful challenge!).
“A stunning picture book about separation, connection and reunion from the team behind the glorious Iceberg, renowned picture book creators Claire Saxby and Jess Racklyeft.
This is the wind
that carries the whisper
from Ren’s dream.
This is the sailor,
long at sea,
who catches it.
The multi-award-winning duo behind Iceberg returns! With its lyrical, cumulative text and whimsical, richly imagined artwork, Whisper on the Wind is a celebration of the wonders of the ocean and the power of love to find us – wherever we are.”
