This one was really tough for me. I just couldn’t put anything together! Nothing felt magical about the tiles from yesterday. I do feel some kind of connection with shipwrecks. Lake Superior has hundreds of them, and shipwrecks in general kind of fascinate me. I was picturing some kind of wind spirit or something singing and howling over a stormy lake, grieving over the sailors lost throughout the centuries.
I didn’t have any immediate picture book connections in mind as I wrote this one, though Patricia Sutton’s fantastic middle-grade nonfiction book, Capsized! (read my review here), came into my head after I finished it. Fabulous book.
