That night the wind roars and rumbles,

like the sound of a thousand waves
pounding the shoreline.





A young boy’s favorite place in the world is the old, splintery neighborhood dock. He calls it “my dock.” At this dock the boy can swim, fish, or watch minnows dart between the rocks. But a hurricane is coming… and its violent winds and rain carry with it anything that can float, including his dock.




As the boy tries to rebuild alone, eventually the town’s people all pitch in, and it becomes “our dock.”




Caldecott Honoree John Rocco shows the power of community and the beauty of rebuilding after adversity in this dramatically-illustrated companion book to Blizzard and Blackout.
