It isn't fair!

Ebb and Flo and their friend Bird are having a peaceful day at the beach until Flo's sandwiches disappear. Flo blames Ebb -- but she didn't do it! Ebb doesn't think it's fair to be blamed for something she didn't do so she goes off by herself to sulk. But just when Flo discovers who the real sandwich-nappers are, a terrible storm begins -- and Ebb is missing! Flo is worried and desperately wants to find her friend. Will Ebb and Flo -- and their friendship -- weather this storm?

About the Author:

Jane has travelled extensively, and is currently making her way around the waterways of Europe with her husband Neil and their menagerie of animals, on their boat Prosperity. The success of her Daisy series has been phenomenal and as well as winning the the Smarties Silver Award, Daisy was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award, the Children's Book Award and Highly Commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Misunderstanding and forgiveness create a simple friendship story with a lesson. Flo and her mother go on a picnic at the beach with Ebb the dog and their friend Bird. Ebb falls asleep on the sand and awakens to witness seagulls feasting on the picnic spread. When Flo and her mother return from their walk, they blame the dog for eating their meal. Ebb, shamed and in disgrace, sadly climbs into the boat to sulk. During a sudden rain shower, the gulls return to the picnic basket and Flo realizes that she has wrongly accused Ebb. In the meantime, the little boat drifts out to sea, spins, and crashes against some rocks, and the shaken pup crawls to shore, seaweed and all. Flo apologizes and all ends happily. It is the deceptively simple artwork with its varying perspectives and soft, colorful illustrations, predominantly in the blues and greens of the sea, that makes the book sparkle. Minimal facial details and the tilt of Ebb's tail and ears convey his range of emotions. Short, somewhat choppy sentences with repetitive phrases make the book useful as a beginning reader. Though not quite as successful as Ebb and Flo and the New Friend (McElderry, 1999), this book is a serviceable tale of false accusation and redemption.
