For those of us who may never get the chance to visit Quebec’s Îles de la Madeleine, picking up Marie-Andrée Arsenault and Dominique Leroux’s Pebbles to the Sea takes us on a poetic voyage to a small corner of this archipelago found in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Leroux’s illustrations fill the book’s pages with a collage of images and textures that invite us to contemplate every detail. Each element weaves itself seamlessly into the story told through the eyes of two sisters, Flo and Fée.
Pebbles to the Sea
Translated by Shelley Tanaka
Illustrated by Dominique Leroux
Pebbles to the Sea is a story about community and the people in our lives who are there for us, even when we may feel alone. Luckily for Flo and Fée, the caring adults around them help them understand that they are the special connection that will always tie their parents together.mRb
