What's Hum and Swish About

Publisher Summary

Celebrate creativity, introversion, summer sun– and the beauty of a little peace and quiet! It’s a glorious summer day at the shore, and all Jamie wants is to finish her art project in the sand. A little time to herself is all she needs. But everyone around keeps asking her pesky questions she doesn’t know how to answer: what are you making? Aren’t you clever? Jamie does her best to tune it all out and focus on her creation . . . until she finds a like-minded friend, who’s as happy to work quietly as she is. Widely respected artist Matt Myers makes his debut as an author in this charming story about introversion, art, and the quiet joy of finding a kindred spirit. Creative, clever, and funny, Hum and Swish is a perfect summer read-aloud, with detailed, colorful artwork you’ll love to pore over. A Bank Street Best Book of the Year
