    A love of words, walks, and a watery natural landscape highlight an intergenerational friendship in this posthumously published picture book from Newbery winner MacLachlan. One half of the duo is Lucy, a young girl with a white-blonde bob. The other half, referred to as my poet, is the beloved wordsmith Mary Oliver, whose white hair is also bobbed. Both appreciate exploring Cape Cod; enjoying the sea, woods, and market; and finding the just-right words to describe what they see—a strawberry, for instance, is a jewel. The words are here, my poet tells Lucy. You just have to find them. Hill's blowsy, light-washed pictures capture the area's magic, full of weathered fences, pink rugosa roses, shell-strewn beaches, and gray-shingled cottages. The poet's dogs—one white, one black—cavort through the spreads, leading readers onward as Lucy discovers her own words and, inspired by the poet, ends the story with a poem. A sweet paean to inspiration and contemplation, with an afterword by MacLachlan explaining how she knew the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Oliver. Preschool-Grade 2.
