Sea Glass Summer by Michelle Houts. Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline. Is a lovely story of the tales that a piece of glass might tell. Thomas is visiting his grandmother for the summer in her seaside cottage. He explores the shoreline and collects the sea glass he finds. His vivid dreams, which are shown in charcoal drawings, are of the imagined events that might have resulted in the broken glass he finds in his present-day explorations.
