What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

After his father dies, Kai experiences all kinds of emotions: sadness, anger, fear, guilt. Sometimes they crash and mix together. Other times, there are no emotions at all—just flatness. As Kai and his family adjust to life without Dad, the waves still roll in. But with the help of friends and one another, they learn to cope—and, eventually, heal. A lyrical story about grieving for anyone encountering loss.

Who Illustrated One Wave at a Time

illustrator
Ashley Crowley

As a young child, Ashley often visited the police station where his uncle worked, to have his fingerprints taken, visit the cells, and play in police cars. This early experience later became inspiration for his debut picture book, Officer Panda. After receiving his BA in graphic design and working in London at Arena and GQ magazines as a junior designer, Ashley eventually pursued his own career as a police officer. However, his passion for art never subsided. In 2014, Ashley earned his MA in children’s book illustration at Cambridge School of Art. Ashley’s most recent picture books include The Boy and the Blue Moon, One Wave at a Time and Pup 681: A Sea Otter Rescue Story. Ashley now lives with his family in a historic English town in Warwickshire, United Kingdom.
