Bayberry Bluff

Blair Lent, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $13.95 (30p) ISBN 978-0-395-35384-4
The steamboat Mermaid carries its passengers to Bayberry Island summer after summer, first as tourists and visitors and then as vacationers and permanent dwellers. Their parasols are replaced by tents; the tents, by canvases over wooden frames; those are eventually dislodged, and courtly new homes are erected. More buildings are added, and a village called Bayberry Bluff is born. This docudrama about a Martha's Vineyard village will be welcomed by young and old. The art, printed from cardboard-cuts (similar to woodcuts), shows the elaborate gingerbread ornamentation of the contented visitors' homes. Each house is distinguished by a pattern on the tiled roof and a particular design of carved flowers and animals. It's a truly enchanted community of lodgers, in stunning, eye-filling scenes by the Caldecott medalist. All ages. (April)
