this has been one of my favourite books sinse i was fairly young, and i loved it becuase i lived near the sea for much of my life. now i am away from it i think i read it more than ever, it is so beautiful, and the pictures draw you in in such away that you cant help yourself running across the fields and the fences and away into the sea with the little girl and her mum.
it is truly an amazing book, and i would recomend it to anyone of any age, as you get so much from it each time you read it; the pictures alone are worthy of awe, and the story with them will put a lump in your throught and a tear in your eye. ive read it to children i have babysat and they love the pictures, and the idea of seeing the sea at night.
sorry that this is a bit of a babble, but truly, it is beautiful beyond words, and would be a treasure in anyones home.
