Andrew hates water and intends to stay away from the ocean while at the beach, but he changes his mind when he needs water for the sand city he is building.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- Andrew hates water whether it's in the tub, in the yard, or worst of all, at the beach. He's sure the sea is filled with "pinching crabs and slimy monsters. Maybe even a shark or two." A new friend shows him that water will make his earnestly constructed sand castle stay together, and Andrew discovers--suddenly--that he's all wet. Reassuring and true-to-life, this satisfying picture book doesn't solve the youngster's aversion, but begins the solution. Also realistic and appealing are Wright-Frierson's watercolors. Painterly use of color draws the eye to well-rendered figures and lively waves. Best of all are the stocky, expressive children and the sea monsters, contributed by the illustrator's young daughter. A pleasing story about a child's recovery from fear.
