Every year at harvest, in a cozy cove on the south shore of Nova Scotia, families and neighbors gather by the water and send their carved pumpkins out into the bay. Spin to Sea celebrates this enchanting annual event through magical illustrations and lyrical text.

No pumpkins were harmed in the making of this book.
CM Magazine - January 10, 2014
"Written in simple, yet lyrical prose, the story invokes the imagination. Young readers will easily identify with the excitement that the children in the book portray...Fitch's play with light is inspiring as the pumpkins illuminate the dark night...Spin to Sea would be a wonderful addition to any library."
Resource Links - December 1, 2013
"The pictures are colourful and bright...complementing the enchanting large text...Will be a hit with libraries."
