A beautiful, uncomplicated story about 2 children on a visit to the sea, somewhere in South Africa (?). One of my childrens' favourite bedtime reads.

I hated this book when it was at the library, Then my son brought it home, I hated reading it then. I then had to spend 10 on it as we misplaced the book. The book may be fantastic but I just hate the thing.
