About this title
In an inspiring pairing, Amy Hest and P.J. Lynch create an unforgettable tribute to the immigrant experience.
Jessie lives with her grandmother in a poor village in the valleys of eastern Europe. When, to everyone's surprise, young Jessie is chosen by the village rabbi to travel to America, and to leave her grandmother behind, they both feel their hearts will break.
Award-winning author Amy Hest brings her sure and inspired touch to the story of our immigrant heritage as she follows Jessie across the ocean to a new life—and a new love—in America.
Exquisitely illustrated by P.J. Lynch, with paintings that glow with warmth and carefully observed detail, WHEN JESSIE COMES ACROSS THE SEA transcends time and culture in a tribute to the courage and hope of all who seek a better life. It is destined to become a modern classic.
Amy Hest is the author of many much-loved and bestselling picture books, including Kiss Good Night, illustrated by Anita Jeram, and Charley's First Night and When Charley Met Granpa, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
