Elizabeth Spurr holds a degree in journalism from the University of Southern California. A former newspaper editor, she is the author of a number of children's books. Manelle Oliphant is a graduate of Brigham Young University-Idaho and an artist and illustrator. She lives in Utah.
"Oliphant's soft drawings, which look to be a mix of watercolor and
colored pencil, capture the flow of sand and water well... While
the youngster was pleasingly more self-reliant and self-assured in
previous offerings, his play and his interactions with the natural
world continue to ring true."
"The gentle scenes are depicted in watercolor and pencil, with one or two words per page... This simple story will resonate with parents and children."
