Grandparents early-warning for magical book-buying. @mariarussonyt

Town Is By the Sea Written by Joanne Schwartz. Illustrated by Sydney Smith. A young boy watches his father leave for the mines each day, knowing that one day he too will leave the pleasures of his seaside home to toil in the darkness. In brown, gray and black leavened by soft yellows and blues, Smith’s ardent paintings capture the brilliance of the sun on the sea and the smudgy darkness of a mine with equal intensity, creating an exquisitely personal feeling of the movement of time and history. 52 pp. Groundwood. $19.95.
