Author Info
Kevin Henkes
Author and illustrator Kevin Henkes had his first book, entitled ALL ALONE, published in 1981 when he was only 19 years old. Since then, he has become an enormously popular author of picture books and novels for middle-grade readers, notably the Newbery Honor Book OLIVE'S OCEAN. Many of Henkes's picture books, such as JULIUS THE BABY OF THE WORLD and LILY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE, feature the character Lily--a feisty white mouse. In 2005, he was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Medal for his charming, duotoned KITTEN'S FIRST FULL MOON. In 2006, he received the Sterling North Legacy Award for Excellence in Children's Literature.
Praise
"Characters are gently and believably developed as the story weaves in and around the beautiful Wisconsin setting. The superbly crafted plot moves smoothly and unhurriedly, mirroring a slow summer pace."
"[T]he writing is as evocative as it is precise: fireflies are 'pinpricks of topaz.' Emotions are just as carefully carved, turning the characterization into portraiture...Henkes knows children and their secrets, and readers will lean close to hear the whispers."
"The most remarkable aspect of the book may be the author's ability to isolate the sources of the boys' shared sense of loss and then to express, via easily recognizable and even ordinary experiences, their growing acceptance of what cannot be changed."
"Through artfully observed details and perfectly pitched dialogue among the boys and clever Lolly, Henkes deftly locates Mitch's pain and confusion, delivering a novel that's quiet, nuanced and redemptive."
From the Publisher
Annotation Capturing summertime silence and the even deeper quiet of two boys from fractured families, acclaimed children's author and illustrator Kevin Henkes has created another stunning middle grade novel. Twelve-year-old Mitch is struggling to understand his parents' divorce while fighting boredom at his grandparents' lake house, while at ten, Spencer is on a family trip filled with haunted memories. The two befriend each other, and slowly forge a friendship that helps each of them begin to recover.
Editors Note There are ghosts at Bird Lake, and they're haunting Mitch Sinclair and Spencer Stone. Not the Halloween kind, but ghosts of the past. Memories of how life was before—before the divorce, before the accident. Can their ghosts bring Mitch and Spencer together, as friends? Or will their secrets keep them apart? Either way, it is a summer that neither Mitch nor Spencer will ever forget.
