Driftwood Dragons is a collection of thirty-four lyrical seaside poems for children. Inspired by the coastline and accompanied by whimsical illustrations, these poems are celebrations of the coastal environment. From an ode to a beach flea to a short conversation with a snail, Driftwood Dragons perfectly captures the beauty, diversity and joy to be found at East Coast beaches.
CM Magazine - September 7, 2012
"Each verse contains astute observation and pithy details that heighten the reader's awareness of ordinary objects seen in and around the sea that often go unnoticed...Adding greatly to the charm of the book are the illustrations of Tamara Thiebaux-Heikalo. Every poem has its own related illustration, and the delicate watercolors capture the tenor of each verse perfectly...With its attractive layout and harmony of text and illustrations, Driftwood Dragons and Other Seaside Poems is a book that invites the young reader to browse and ponder."
