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.
