Martha’s Vineyard Islanders Kate Taylor and Judy Pfeiffer have spent a busy winter with author Stacy Hall, putting together a little childhood summer time magic, just in time for the coming halcyon days. Talented artist Judy Pfeiffer brings to life lullaby Chappy Song, in the gorgeous new must-have summer children’s book, Chappaquiddick Lullaby (Island Moon Press, 2007). The book includes a CD of Chappy Song, sung by Island singer-songwriter Kate Taylor, with music and vocals by Taylor Brown. Kate Taylor’s pure lilting down-home sound is the perfect complement to this beautiful book. The CD also includes a reading of the story by the author. Written for her children, Hall’s lullaby is full of summer activities and memories familiar to those who live on or visit Martha’s Vineyard. Fishing and clamming, trips for ice cream and to the Flying Horses come alive on the pages of lyrical illustrations of a family experiencing the joys of an island summer. It is fun for children of all ages to spot the hidden piece of wampum on each page. Chappaquiddick Lullaby is author/publisher Hall’s second book. Her first, The Legend of Katama, the Creation Story of Dolphins, a Wampanoag Legend of Martha’s Vineyard (Island Moon Press), was released in August 2003 and is already a Vineyard classic.

Chappaquiddick Lullaby, Stacy Hall's new book, is even better than her first, The Legend of Katama, which was very good indeed. The words in Lullaby dance across the pages of delightful drawings by Judy Pfeiffer, and the combination is charming. This is a book that will still be captivating when it's read by the grandchildren of the children who read it today.
