Wave by Suzy Lee (c. 2008) gives credibility to the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words." In this case, a wordless book of 40 pages presents no need for words. I could say a lot about how wonderful I think this book is. However, sometimes silence speaks volumes, as my children give testimony to in the way they silently pour over the pages of Suzy Lee's masterpiece. To further convince you, I debated about including more illustrations from Wave but came to the conclusion that it's best experienced in its panorama whole. In closing, as the publisher so aptly articulates, step into these deceptively simple pages for a day at the sea--and a joyful story that begins and ends with a wave.
