Reviews

An atmospheric, haunting story about a young boy whose father digs for coal beneath the sea. * The Bookseller *
This haunting book, beautifully illustrated in ink and watercolour, bears record to a long-gone way of life. [...]A book that demands to be studied and thought about. * LoveReading, Andrea Reece *
"Written by Joanne Schwartz and delightfully illustrated by Sydney Smith, Town is by the Sea is a quiet book that will stay with readers long after they have closed it." * Israel Book Review *
"[...] this book is a stunning snapshot of a life [...] And while this is for the reader a rather haunting tale, it also highlights the beauty and happiness that can be found around us even when life can seem harsh. [...] The melodic text reads beautifully and the colour palette is stunning; Smith's work on conveying sunlight on the water is some of the most striking I have ever encountered [...] " * Library Mice *
"A story, simply told, with beautifully evocative illustrations: this book is pure delight. [...] It is one which when shared and talked about will become a firm favourite." * The School Librarian *
