Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Susan illustrated a coloring book for Children visiting St. Thomas many years ago when we first met. She is one of the most educated, experienced and versatile artists I know. Susan paints while transversing Europe by foot, she paints colorful portraits of the characters she meets in people and animals. Her work and spiritual life is so developed, Susan can express
a mood or feeling in watercolor with dashing bright free strokes against easy washes. This gift of interpretation elicits a comfortable response, illustrates the minds image at the same time leaving plenty of space for the imagination. Grant is an educated musician with his doctorate in English. The story is a sensitive narrative that brings full circle reality to dream state and back to reality. It is this sequence Grant rythmacally weaves that allows a young persons mind to ease as they cope with the unknown and sometimes fear filled transition to the state of sleep. In the publishing world it is advised the author and illustrator do not meet. My experience underscores this truth. However when you have a professional writer and artist in the same family, loving the same child, neither separation nor collaboration is necessary, it simply bloomed like flowers in a field.

This was a delightfully written book. My grandsons were delighted with Mason's walk and then surprised and wondered if it was really a dream. The illustrations were beautiful. They were simple and very appealing to children and adults alike. The author and illustrator are very talented.

The Walk is one of those special children's books you will enjoy reading over and over again just as much as your little one will love hearing the comforting words and seeing the wonderful illustrations. The story takes some surprising twists and turns into an engaging fantasy, and delivers on its promise of sweet dreams.

This book is so sweet and soothing - I almost put my 18 year old daughter to sleep by reading it to her. The illustrations are wonderful!
