內容簡介


我的家 在海邊

我的家在海邊,我的爸爸是礦工,他就在海底下的礦坑工作。

每天早上我在海鷗聲、狗吠、關門聲中醒來,向窗外看到的第一眼就是海,我知道這時爸爸已經在海裡的隧道挖礦好一陣子了。
接著我和朋友到遊樂場盪鞦韆,我盪得好高好高,可以看見海面白白的浪花,我知道浪花下的海底,有我正在挖礦的爸爸。
吃完中餐後,我幫媽媽到商店跑腿,經過海,波光粼粼,閃耀的像個大鏡子,嗯,大鏡子底下有我挖礦的爸爸。
下午,我會到墓園看爺爺,爺爺希望自己的墓面向海,因為爺爺也是礦工。
晚餐,爸爸回來,太陽沉入海,那是爸爸工作的地方。

每晚睡前,我回想著白天的一切,想著爸爸,想著海,我知道,有一天,換我上場,我是礦工的孩子。

While a young boy enjoys a summer's day, his thoughts constantly return to his father, who is digging for coal deep under the sea.

"An atmospheric, haunting story" - The Bookseller

Stunning illustrations by Sydney Smith, the award-winning illustrator of Footpath Flowers, show the striking contrast between a sparkling seaside day and the darkness underground where the miners dig. This beautifully understated and haunting story brings a piece of mining history to life. The ever-present ocean and inevitable pattern of life in a mining town will enthral children and move adult readers, as a young boy wakes up to the sound of the sea, visits his grandfather's grave after lunch and comes home to a cosy dinner with his family, but all the while his mind strays to his father digging for coal deep down under the sea.
