About the Author:

Alison Jay's signature style, which features distinctive crackle varnishing, has also been featured in Barefoot Books titles Listen, Listen and I Took the Moon for a Walk.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 3—Full of shells, rocks, and other found objects, this wordless beachcomber's tale captures a lively seaside setting with a lighthouse at its center. The boy who lives in the lighthouse, his dog and cat, and many others enjoy the beach on a clear day—boating, swimming, walking, collecting—but careful observers will notice the clouds creeping in. Volleying in and out of the comfort of the lighthouse that night, readers see the storm rage and bring in a large tide. When the new day dawns, a giant octopus has beached itself with its legs entangled in netting. At first people run in fear, but the lighthouse boy, his friend, and some animals bravely come to free the giant from the nets. The following comical spread shows everyone coming together to return the octopus to its home as all of the creatures of the sea, from orcas to dolphins to deep sea divers, grab a leg and pull. Rounded lines and exaggerated shapes and figures give the visuals, (done in alkyd oil paint with a crackle varnish), a magical storybook quality. The illustrations use borders and point of view to great effect in telling the story. Back matter includes relevant information about tides, lighthouses, the giant octopus, and trash. Perfect for hours of poring over and sharing.—Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
