About the Book

A timely and relevant picture book about the power of community

“This moving story, with wondrous art, feels like childhood itself. The journey of eagerness, discovery, joy, and fear—with comfort at the end.” —Patricia MacLachlan, Newbery Medal-winning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall

Finding himself alone and scared in the middle of a storm, a small mouse finds comfort and strength when he sees another boat and is joined by others. They ride out the storm together—close enough to see each other, but not close enough to crash.

In a gentle metaphor for the global pandemic, Adrift is a way to start conversations with young readers about fear, hope and being together even from afar. It was written by award-winning children’s author Heidi E. Y. Stemple while she was in lockdown missing her friends and family. Her beautiful words are brought to life by Anastasia Suvorova, who has won high acclaim for illustrating stories about nature, children, dreams, traveling, magic, hope, and kindness.
