Love it! An imaginative story of small hard-shelled, seaweed-haired creatures on the Cornish coast called Beachcombers, with huge hearts and an even larger sense of adventure. The hero, Winkle, goes in search of his missing sister (Cockle) who has been taken by a Black Dragon and deposited in the lair of the hairy, warty Shagpile who crunches up Beachcomber bones for breakfast. There are monsters, treasure, crystals - and humans (Clodhoppers) - and plenty of excitement. The illustrations are magical in themselves! What more could you want from a children's book?
