It's Only Ink! Ocean Whispers
It's Only Ink!
Known as a wordless picture book, the illustrator/author Dennis Rockhill perfectly describes a child's dream of living and playing in an underwater wonderland. Once asleep, the little girl in the book gets to swim with friendly whales while she dreams that she becomes a whale-girl herself. The trancelike lyrical poem sets the imaginary mood to a tee.
"Ocean Whispers" is written in Spanish and English with an instruction page in the back to help first-time wordless picture book readers.
Raven Tree's books stand out from the rest with the books they choose to publish, the illustrators they work with, and the way they prepare their books. They use full text translation in English and Spanish, and readers can look up words in the language they choose in the back of the book.
This beautiful, inspirational, and fairy taleish book is intended for all ages and is highly recommended by the Leese children.
