So imagine my delight in finding Doris Burn's The Summerfolk at our local used bookstore! Then imagine my disappointment that our local library doesn't carry a copy.
Folks, I have good news:
- You can purchase The Summerfolk written and illustrated by Doris Burn (c. 1968) off amazon.com or half.com (I am in no way gleaning any profits from these websites in passing along this information) for a mere $7.
- I'm going to post several illustrations as well as the opening storyline to give you a taste of this delightful summer read:
next page: But all summer long--well, that was another kettle of fish. Every summer, strange people came from the city for a holiday beside the sea. These strangers were called summerfolk. . . .
