Liberty University Press’ new children’s book, “Alone Upon the Sea,” follows the adventures of a small girl as she travels to different places around the globe.
The unnamed small girl packs only a map and sets out to find “something more.” During her travels, which are written in rhyme, the main character discovers new places and learns the meaning of bravery, integrity, independence, as well as the significance of reading. Author and illustrator Rachel Lewis hopes her book will impart a love for reading and an understanding of how important each of our individual journeys are.
Throughout her life Lewis has been captivated by literature. Growing up, she spent hours reading books by authors such as Dr. Seuss and A.A. Milne. Inspired by her favorite childhood authors and desire to create her own story, Lewis penned “Alone Upon the Sea.”
