There is no doubt that the illustrations in this Cape Cod tall tale are treats for the eye. Each illustration serves double duty- not only is the storyline enhanced, but Rosen’s work also tells stories of its own. Her detailed attention to the natural world of a salt water shoreline make each illustration a learning experience.
The Magic of the Clam Flats is the second children’s book Anne Rosen and Jim Wolf have collaborated on together, the first being When Santa Claus Met Sandy Claws, a 2002 hardcover bestseller on Cape Cod. Rosen lives in Truro, Massachusetts, and can be reached at [email protected].
