    Beautiful in every way even down to the characters name, Finn. I loved everything about this book, the illustrations are breathtaking and you can pour over them for ages. I loved the whole story and the theme and as someone who adores the ocean this book just hit everything in the right place for me, beautiful is the best word I have to describe this book.

    My Grammer turned 92 this year; she won't turn 93. She would have loved this book.My Gramper never saw his 90s. He taught my Mummy a song about the Man in the Moon, which his mother had sang to him, and which my Mummy sang to me when I was little, and I in turn sing to my children. My Gramper was a practical man, with work-scarred hands, who sang to his children about the Man in the Moon. This book makes me long for my grandparents. The art is beyond beautiful, of course; the Fan brothers cannot My Grammer turned 92 this year; she won't turn 93. She would have loved this book.My Gramper never saw his 90s.

    Beautifully illustrated picture book! Fin is mourning his grandfather on what would have been his 90th birthday. He decides to honor his grandfather by trying to build a boat they had always talked about. Fin falls asleep after some building and journeys to the place where the ocean meets the sky in his dream. Great for storytimes about water/boating and using your imagination. Also could help young children who have lost grandparents.

    The second I saw this book, I cracked it open and read it. I absolutely love Terry and Eric Fan's books. This story was lovely, sweet and very moving. It would be a wonderful book to read after the death of a loved one. The illustrations were (as always) magical and spectacular. Another 5 star book!

    Brilliant illustrations support this story of a young boy who honors his grandfather by building a boat to sail to the place where the ocean meets the sky. He listened to his grandfather's stories of this magical place and decides to set sail. He definitely knows it when he arrives. Magical illustrations draw the reader in to the tale.

    Can I rate this 6 stars? Wow. Also, you HAVE TO look under the jacket. Also, I just added this to my to buy list. This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It had a bit of a Where the Wild Things Are feel to it. Wow.

    This is a lovely, dreamy fantasy that really tugs at the heartstrings, especially if you have squishy feelings for grandparents. I usually whip through picture books but I lingered over this one simply because the Fan brothers' illustrations are so detailed and surreal.

    Just beautiful. A story of missing a lost loved one, with visual echoes of Max who sailed in and out of weeks, and The Maggie B, by Irene Haas. The Fan Brothers are a new favorite for sure. Illustrations are done in graphite and colored digitally.

    The sentence at the end of the description was virtually a guarantee that I wouldn't enjoy the story:"And when he arrives, maybe, just maybe, he’ll find something he didn’t know he was looking for."I'm giving it three stars because the pictures are excellent.
