Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689821751, Hardcover)It's hot, hot, hot. A small boy and his parents are at the beach where there are crowds of surfers and sailboarders and sunbathers.
The boy doesn't much like the big waves. He holds hands with his parents for only one big one. Then he runs off to find some fun. He zips through the crowd, heading toward the lifeguard station high on a dune. Just below it is an old, abandoned boat, waiting for the boy to be its brave captain. And brave he is, fending off sharks and storms. But all of a sudden, with the dunes rising like big waves around him, he realizes he is lost and all alone. "Mommy! Daddy!" he cries. With the help of a lifeguard who comes to his rescue, all ends well.
Full of gentle humor and illustrated with exuberant watercolor paintings, this is a reassuring story Niki Daly, the creator of Not So Fast, Songololo and Papa Lucky's Shadow, has here conjured up all the pleasures of a summer day at the beach that no one, young or old, will be able to resist.
