"I've got a very special place in my heart for Maine books. Written by Maine authors. Published by Maine publishers. So I'm not surprised I fell in love with the book. The sweet story of a boy named Shawn who finds that value is in the eye of the beholder. A typical Maine family passing down the skills of the trade and generations of wisdom. The descriptive language of this book paired with the incredible illustrations will put you right on Maine's coast. The art work is comprised of gorgeous paintings and rich colors. My daughter especially loved the buoys."

“The Fish House Door by Robert F. Baldwin is a vivid glance at small time life by the shore in Maine. The story has surprising depth for a children's book: it explores moments of quiet companionship between father and son, as well as a gentle message about what defines beauty and value.”
—The Black Sheep Dances
“Highly recommended. This should become a family classic handed down to each new generation for years to come.”
