Review:

"A lovely tale for a summer evening." -The Toronto Sun "Beautifully produced...superb illustrations." -Canadian Materials "Lott's illustrations are handsome watercolors that capture the changing light of dawn and the ever-changing surface of the sea." -Quill & Quire "A jewel...the book encapsulates a glowing summer memory that will strike a warm and resonant chord in everyone who has experienced the beauty and solitude of a lake, stream, or ocean before dawn. Words and pictures evoke the delights and regrets that emerge from a summer's last fishing trip." -Canadian Book Review Annual
