Ocean Meets Sky

Terry Fan and Eric Fan's Ocean Meets Sky is about a young boy who sets sail to fins the point where the ocean meets the sky.

Terry Fan & Eric Fan

From the creators of the gorgeous bestseller The Night Gardener, comes a stunning new picture book about a young boy who sets sail to find a place his grandfather told him about… the spot where the ocean meets the sky.

It's a good day for sailing. Finn lives by the sea and the sea lives by him. Every time he looks out his window it's a constant reminder of the stories his grandfather told him about the place where the ocean meets the sky. Where whales and jellyfish soar and birds and castles float. Finn's grandfather is gone now but Finn knows the perfect way to honour him. He'll build his own ship and sail out to find this magical place himself! And when he arrives, maybe, just maybe, he'll find something he didn't know he was looking for.

Ocean Meets Sky by the Fan Brothers was a finalist for the 2018 Governor General's Literary Award for young people's literature — illustrated books.
