Every time I read The Uncorker of Ocean Bottles, I see or read something I didn’t notice before – a bit of picture, a gently crafted phrase. The Uncorker is in charge of getting bottles containing messages to their proper recipients, and one day he is unable to do this. The writing is spare and beautiful, the illustrations made of woodblock prints, oil pastels, and pencil are soft and gentle. Read this. You won’t regret it.
