Description The Sound of the Sea de Jacqueline Harvey:

This moving tale explores the relationship between a young boy, Samuel Sullivan, and his mother. Samuel is remembering the precious times he spent with his mother before she became ill and went away. With the love and support of his grandparents, Samuel gradually starts to understand and little by little realises that although his mother is gone, she is with him always. Jacqueline Harvey wrote this story one evening after an afternoon fishing trip to South Golden Beach, north of Byron Bay. A young boy about nine years old arrived with his fishing rod in hand accompanied by his very pregnant mother, and the pair evoked in her feelings of the incredible, often unspoken love, between a parent and child. Jacqueline began to think about a young boy she had known who had lost his mother at a young age, and the poignancy of his devastation and ultimate survival. Samuel s anger, grief and eventual acceptance of his mother s death are brilliantly depicted in Warren Crossett s beautiful illustrations. About the author Jacqueline Harvey is Deputy Head of Junior School at Abbotsleigh Girls School, Wahroonga NSW, and lives in Pymble with her husband and stepdaughter. Her first published book was Code Name Mr Right, followed by its sequel, Code Name Unwanted. Another book in the series, Code Name Rescue, will be published in 2005. The text of The Sound of the Sea won the Frustrated Writers competition held by the NSW Branch of the CBCA in 2001. About the illustrator Warren Crossett studied Applied Art at Box Hill TAFE, and in 1985 he won a statewide illustration prize. Since completing his studies, he has done graphic design for several advertising companies, and has also illustrated 12 educational books. The Sound of the Sea is his first trade picture book. Warren lives in Ringwood with his wife and three children.
