July 2018 Book of the Month | Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2019

Beautifully written, beautifully illustrated, Ocean Meets Sky is a celebration of love and the imagination, and a wonderful book to prompt discussion of loss, particularly of a grandparent.  Finn has vivid memories of his grandfather and the exciting stories he told.  On the day his grandfather would have been 90, Finn builds a boat out of junk and leftover bits of wood.  Falling asleep, he dreams an amazing adventure where, in the company of a golden fish, he visits the magical place his grandfather described, where ocean meets sky. Surrounded by whales, strange vessels and starbright jellyfish, he floats up to the moon and finds it has his grandfather’s face, until his mother’s voice calls him home for supper. With a rare sense of silence and wonder this is a story to pore over, to share and to return to again and again.
