Preview: Hear it

In the Village of Basketeers, the soil is too rocky for farming and the sea too rough for fishing. Luckily, the grasses and reeds that grow nearby are ideal for making baskets and a basketeer can weave anythinga house for a duck, a barn for a horse, or a carriage fit for a queen. Life is good in the village until one day when the wind blows a little harder than it blew the day before. And it only gets worse the next day, and the next. The townspeople have big ideas for taming the wind, but the wind is in no mood to be caught. Can little Elsa and Kip coax the wind into settling down, with the cleverest idea of all? In this original tale, Lynda Gene Rymond creates an enchanting village that is brought to life by Nicoletta Ceccolis mesmerizing illustrations, full of sunset color and bursting with energy.
