First edition of Caldecott-winner Shulevitz's watercolor tribute to sunrise, based on a poem by the ancient Chinese poet Liu Chung-yuan. Shulevitz follows the early morning adventures of an old man and his grandson on a camping trip. "The oars screak and rattle, churning pools of foam. / Suddenly / the mountain and the lake are green." A lovely copy.
