Barbara Cooney. Puffin Books, $6.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-14-050756-0

Praising Cooney's ``wide, sweeping seascapes that contrast with the velvety, close-up interiors,'' PW added that the book ``is an ode to simple acts of daily living. Not only one family's tale, this is also a cherishable glimpse of a bygone time.'' Ages 3-8. (June)
