About This BookOne day a little girl said to her brother...
Do you know what I'll do at the seashore?
I'll bring you a shell to hold the sound of the sea.
In a little girl's magical question-and-answer game, Charlotte Zolotow captures, with unerring childlike simplicity, a sister's special love for her little brother. Javaka Steptoe's bold artwork offers a stunning new interpretation of the reassuring, lyrical text and brings to yet another generation of children this well-loved story.
