An ALA Notable Book. A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. A boy and his grandfather watch dawn break together.
This Caldecott Honor Book and "Publishers Weekly" Best Book of the Year is now in paperback. As snowflakes slowly come down, one by one, people in the city ignore them and only a boy and his dog think that the snowfall will amount to anything. Full color.
A poor man, inspired by a recurring dream, journeys to a far city to look for a treasure, only to be told to go home and find it. [This text is listed as an example that meets Common Core Standards in English language arts for grades 2-3 at http://www.corestandards.org.]
A boy sets out on the high seas, hides from a pirate, finds a treasure map, is frightened by a strange man, and then overcomes his fear so he can sail again. This excellent adventure about the power of the imagination will be enjoyed by readers and sailors. . . but maybe not by pirates.
