On the shores of an unknown ocean
On a day unspecified
Plays a boy unnamed by the author
For it’s your job to supply
Captions for the pictures
And a story from what you glean
How far-out can you go?
Well that remains to be seen
Note: There’s something about David Wiesner’s books that’s like “kiddie crack” at storytime. No matter how many times you gently tell the kids to sit down so that everyone can see, they gradually creep back to get a better look at his lush illustrations.
