Over the Ocean

Author(s): Taro Gomi

Picture Books

When you don't know what lies beyond the horizon, you get to imagine anything you want. In Over the Ocean, a young girl gazes out to where the water meets the sky and wonders what lies beyond the waves: Boats filled with toys? Skyscrapers filled with people? Houses filled with families? Or, maybe, over the ocean stands someone not so different from the girl herself, returning her gaze. In this celebration of imagination's power, young readers will take joy in the mystery of the faraway, the unknown, the just-beyond.
