Mama, across the sea. Written and illustrated by Alex Godard. Adapted from the French by George Wen. Holt. Ages 4 to 8) Cecile sits on the hot roof of a tiny house on a tiny tropical island, waiting for her mother. Her father was lost at sea, and now Mama has gone away to work in a cold country, leaving the little girl with her illiterate grandparents. Cecile, who can read and write, gives lessons to her grandmother. One day a letter from Mama brings an invitation for Cecile to go and visit. The blurred faces in lush illustrations do not diminish the tale's complex emotions.

Books Across the Sea was a cultural and literary movement begun in 1940 as the result of the stopping of the transatlantic trade in printed books. At that time there was a ban on the import and export of non-essential goods into Britain to free-up shipping space for more essential goods. Books Across the Sea was founded in 1940 by Beatrice Warde to help offset Nazi propaganda among other expatriate Americans remaining in London after the fall of France.
