About the Author:

A childhood spent on the rocky Maine coast introduced Hannah Viano to the wonders of life on and by the water. A decade spent as an outdoor educator from Ketchikan to Cape Horn added the joy of sharing her knowledge and sense of place with others. Viano now lives in Seattle, where she connects to Northwest nature and culture through public art projects, education, and site-specific installations. Her first book is S is for Salmon.

Review:

Six-year-old Arrow longs for seagoing adventures, “playing captain of the cedar stump in the backyard.” He receives an invitation from Grampy Lightning and travels to Alaska on his aunt’s salmon tender boat, learning about the fishing boat and its crew during their travels. Arrow and his grandfather return to Seattle together aboard a friend’s seaplane. The longish story is told in a lyrical style, full of rich vocabulary and evocative phrases. Striking illustrations in muted blues accented with shapes of deep black have the look of woodcuts but are actually cut-paper designs in the artist’s distinctive style. A recipe for “Cast-Iron Skillet Brownies” (like those served on the salmon boat) is included on the final page. . . This intriguing and delightfully illustrated story will be of particular interest to young readers in Washington state and Alaska. . .
Kirkus Reviews

The costar of Arrow's maritime adventure is the striking black paper-cutout artwork by Ballard writer/illustrator Hannah Viano, creator of S is for Salmon. Her bold, beautiful imagery captures the spirit of the Pacific Northwest and fosters dreams of journeying to the last frontier.
—Seattle magazine

Gorgeous papercut images capture the whimsy and wonder of life in the Pacific Northwest -- and the magic of childhood. 
—Alaska Dispatch News

I LOVE the pictures in this one. Brand new for 2015, it will make kids want to go on an Alaskan adventure. Plus, a book that ends with a skillet brownie recipe MUST be good!
—Tales from a Mountain Mama 
 
Children who like the outdoors, fishing, and adventure are going to want to read this book. 
—San Francisco Book Review

“Jellyfish, floatplanes, salmon fishermen and leaping whales are rendered in striking cut-paper designs and a simple palate of muted Northwest colors.
—Cascadia Weekly

"Striking papercut art illustrates [this] tagalong adventure."
—Seattle Met Magazine
