About the Author:

Alison Shaw's photography has appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Time, and Smithsonian. Ms. Shaw divides her time between Martha's Vineyard and Boston, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Nineteen poems selected and illustrated by a noted photographer of Martha's Vineyard fill this book with the sparkle and wrinkle of sand, fish, shells, and sea. Shaw's full-color photos interpret poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, John Masefield, and Christina Rossetti, as well as those by modern poets such as Karla Kuskin, David McCord, and Myra Cohn Livingston. Many of the selections are familiar and readily available elsewhere. Some of the verses are appealingly childlike, including D.A.W.'s "How to Swim." It is delightful to rediscover Livingston's "Seaweed," which is "...gummy/on my tummy,/slippery/on my feet." However, the small photo accompanying it does not capture its essence. Lillian Moore's "Mine" is illustrated with a series of pictures showing a child's possessiveness of a sand pail. Susan Nichols Pulsifer's "The Sounding Fog" is enhanced by a photo of a ship that captures the quietude of a foggy time. The page compositions are designed to pull readers into the pictures as well as into the poems. Unfortunately, the eye of the camera reveals an adult looking at children more often than a child's view of the seashore.?Kay E.
