Before you were born
God wrote your days in a book,

2- Driftwood Days

Driftwood Days illustrated childrens books for kids picture book

“The hazy texture and precise detail of Vess’s colored pencil and ink illustrations, which utilize panels to underline the bough’s movements, pair beautifully with Minever’s dreamy, poetic prose.” – Publishers Weekly (STARRED review)

Written by William Miniver
Illustrated by Charles Vess

HARDCOVER; Coming Soon: 10/22/2019

Under autumn leaves, a boy watches a beaver build a dam. One of the branches slips away, carried downstream by the river. Through the changing seasons, the branch makes a long, epic journey to the sea, before finally getting tossed back onto shore. Changed by the elements, the branch—now driftwood—lies patiently on the beach, until the boy discovers it once again.

Featuring breathtaking artwork by Charles Vess, Driftwood Days offers readers a beautiful, multilayered story about nature, science, childhood, and change.
