A special hardcover edition of a beloved beach book, featuring a pull-out frieze to pin up Filled with fun rhymes and make-believe stories, this wonderfully illustrated children's tale offers an imaginative view of a beach that includes swimming, surfing, and splashing. Imagine a perfect beach where you can swim, surf, splash through the waves, make sandcastles, hunt for treasures, explore rock-pools, muck about in boats, fish from the jetty, and build a bonfire under the stars. Imagine a beach where adventure begins. From sand castles and rock pools to boats and fish, the realistic scenes evoke images of a summer day along the waterfront where anything can happen.

About the Author:

Alison Lester is the well-known creator of many popular and award-winning children's books, including Are We There Yet?The Circus HorseThe Silver Horse Switch, and The Snow Pony. She is also the author of the board books Bibs and Boots, Bumping and Bouncing, Crashing and Splashing, and Happy and Sad.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A favorite Australian illustrator pairs realistic and imaginative experiences at the beach: first, an expansive watercolor depicts children absorbed with playing in the surf or tidal pools, or constructing a vast sandcastle, or roasting marshmallows in a cove by moonlight; a turn of the page reveals a related make-believe scene enclosed in a soft-edged circle (e.g., the beachcombing spread is followed by a picture of the same kids finding a fabulous treasure chest). The carefully crafted verse descriptions are pleasant enough, but the lucid, beautifully observed illustrations here are outstanding: a splendid evocation of summers past and summers still to come. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
