What an amazing picturebook! My Life With the Wave is a far-out adventure that manages an undercurrent about human relation-ships with nature. The imaginative My Life With the Wave offers as its theme a subtle reminder of the difficulty of taming or even coexisting with nature. Beyond that, it has a story -- an element too often missing in children's picturebooks.

My life with the wave. Based on the story by Octavio Paz. Translated and adapted. Illustrated by Mark Buehner. I had not read ''My Life With the Wave'' before reading Catherine Cowan's adaptation, but I felt its strong current, its encoded hysteria and desire, moving under the new story line. The original is about a man - from the start we understand he is, specifically, a sensual man - who leaves a strip of shore and is pursued by a wave, which, despite his protests, insists on going home with him. Difficulties arise straightaway. How can this inamorata ride the train?
The wave in My Life with the Wave is personified; it is represented as a woman in love. This stylistic choice creates a metaphorical comparison between the emotional ebb and flow of a woman in a relationship, and the turbulent, ever-changing nature of an ocean wave.
The wave in My Life with the Wave is personified; it is represented as a woman in love. The school offish is also personified in this story, as the narrator sees them as rivals for the affection of the wave.

this book plays on the beliefs of a child; wanting the impossible. or anyone with an imagination. fantastic illustrations will capture the imagination. com User, June 11, 1998. This is a translation and retelling of an Octavio Paz story about a boy who befriends a wave on his first trip to the seashore and brings it home with him "cup by small cup".
Like a sulky mistress, the wave begins to ignore the boy, and its amusing qualities wane
At home, the wave rushes into the house, knocking over furniture, sending the cat screeching, and providing destructive merriment in the boy's room. Like a sulky mistress, the wave begins to ignore the boy, and its amusing qualities wane. The family abandons the house with the wave inside; in winter it turns to ice and is easily returned to the ocean. The boy dreamily believes that he will have better luck with a cloud, but Buehner's last illustration-in which an anthropomorphic cloud emits lightning bolts-certainly does not bode well.
Mark Buehner; Catherine Cowan; Octavio Pa. The wave kind of dances between the friend that never leaves and a wave that acts like waves do, which is kind of a vague way to describe it but it's the best I can come up with.
Mark Buehner; Catherine Cowan; Octavio Paz. ISBN-13. I've never read anything by the original author of this story, but this was fairly enjoyable. The bond between the boy and the wave and the gradual realization that being roommates with a wave just isn't working out are the core of this story. It's fun if you can handle the mind bending premise.
