Story by Ruth Finnegan, illustrations by Rachel Backshall

Two children build a boat in the sand. Their dog Holly frisks round them. They venture out into a sea inlet, watched by their mother from shore. After all the excitement, they fall asleep. In danger of drifting out to sea, they are safely towed back to shore by the friendly birds and fishes. A sweet and beautifully illustrated magical story that is at the same time an engaging children’s introduction to natural history.
