“The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles lived alone on a high spot with only one tree for shade. He always kept his eyes on the waves, watchful for a glint of glass.”
A wispy and ethereal story of wonder and unexpected friendship. The sea-worn foggy texture of Erin Stead's illustrations befit Michelle Cuevas' affecting, hauntingly beautiful text. The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles is seriously a contender for best picture book published this year.
