Product description


Praise for Pearl:

An Amazon Best Book of the Year 2018
An Amazon Best Book of the Month for October 2018

* "For her fable about patience and perseverance, Idle has created stunning watery spreads, full of curves reflecting the gently scalloped edges of the giant clam that is Pearl's home.... Careful word choice and thoughtful phrasing make this a pleasure to read aloud. A gentle, glowing lesson that even the smallest efforts can lead to large, even environmental results." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "This contemporary fable is sure to captivate." --School Library Connection, starred review

"Glorious." --School Library Journal

"The story soars toward a light-filled, celestial conclusion." --Publishers Weekly
