Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Astounding full-bleed, cut-paper illustrations (in black and white with isolated use of pink and blue) appear opposite the narrative--muted, matte, and miraculous. Clumped kelp, rippling water, clambering crabs, banks of barnacles, round cheeks, the curvature, of feathers and barbed beaks, bark on logs--all achieve extraordinary, evocative clarity through lacy cutouts within the context of gratifying, gorgeous compositions. The tide has brought an extraordinary book to our shores."--Kirkus
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Lavish with words and images in a story that is a worthy heir to Robert McCloskey's work... The sense of place is so rich that it seems possible to smell the air and hear the gulls."
--Publisher's Weekly
**STARRED REVIEW**
"McClure's distinctive artwork--black paper cut with an X-ACTO knife and fountain pen--has never been richer. The simple palette of black, white, and blue, accented with the occasional pink (the sunglasses, the heron's long legs, the gulls' feet), is stunning. Children will love searching for the marine animals and detritus. Delicately penned endpapers illustrate the steps in raft-building, and some shore creatures. A celebration of the natural beauty of a summer's day on the Olympic Coast."--Booklist
