A Word from the Editor

Reader, thank you for exploring with us! The Hidden Shoreline introduces us to a smart girl and a smart dog on a big adventure—and the amazing friends they make along the way. I think this delightful tale is as much fun as a long day on a beautiful beach. Whether you are 8 or 80, it’s a great summer read and a safe book to share with someone you care about. And isn’t Christina’s artwork wonderful? I hope you enjoy getting to know Trinket, Grits, and the funny characters of the Hidden Shoreline as much as I did.

THE WIND INDICATOR SONG



I indicate the wind
It travels all around
Sometimes it’s blowing loudly
Sometimes there’s not a sound

A day can be quite sunny
Or it can be quite gray
It’s hard to tell exactly
Which one will come your way

But one thing you can count on
A fact that seems quite strange
No matter how you’re feeling
There’s going to be a change.
