EVE BUNTING has written over two hundred books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz. She lives in Southern California.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4-"It was nice in our village. Till the night in October when the soldiers came." Thus begins a modern-day exodus story as a Caribbean family joins others in a small boat on a dangerous journey. Eve Bunting's evocative text (HM, 1988) is read by a female narrator against gentle background music and occasional sound effects. From a child's-eye point of view, it tells the moving story of people who are willing to give up everything, risk everything, for freedom. The accompanying paperback book allows listeners to read along and view Beth Peck's beautiful two-page colored pencil illustrations. This is an unusual Thanksgiving book that can be used at any time of the year. It reminds us that we have modern-day pilgrims coming to our shores for much the same reasons, and that living in a free land is something for which we can be truly thankful.
