In this evocative wordless book, internationally acclaimed artist Suzy Lee tells the story of a little girl's day at the beach. Stunning in their simplicity, Lee's illustrations, in just two shades of watercolor, create a vibrant story full of joy and laughter.
Wave was a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book in 2008.
"A panoramic trim size beautifully supports the expansiveness of the beach, and Lee uses the gutter to effectively represent the end of the shoreline -- until the girl crosses that line. Loosely rendered charcoal and acrylic images curl and flow like water and reflect playfulness.... The use of blue in an otherwise gray-toned world calls attention to the ocean, which rivals the girl as a main character in this story.... A simple, well-crafted story of friendship." -- School Library Journal
