Description
"Once I saw a painting / of a woman rising from some deep sea / standing on a boat-like shell / that floated toward shore," begins Tracy Gallup's paean to the wonders of the seashell, while a doll with short red hair holds a little framed reproduction of Botticelli's Birth of Venus. On the next page Gallup confesses, "I dream I am her," and we see the doll now with swirling red locks and a green bathing suit, perched in a pretty pink shell. Shell houses, shell hats, shell wings, and shell horns all adorn her little characters, leading to a story of competing with her brother, "Hawkeye," for finding the most beautiful shells on a family beach trip. As she has done in books like Snow Crazy, Stone Crazy, and Tree Crazy, artist and professional doll maker Tracy Gallup here combines one of her favorite things—shells—with her handmade miniature figures, creating charming photographs to accompany her poetically spare text for all ages.
