“There is a place I know, says the sun, where ducks and ducklings, turtles, trout, catfish with whiskers, and young eels, all crowd together in the water under a willow tree waiting for crumbs. The ducks kick the turtles out of the way, the catfish bite the duck’s toes, the trout whisk a crumb away before the others see it, the little eels try to take the food out of the turtles’ horny beaks. There they all are, in the clear water, under the green willow.”

Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, tightly sandwich it between pieces of cardboard, then wrap in brown paper to send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a one-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
