There is so much to talk about as you turn the pages of this bright, bouncy book. As the group of friendly animal characters take a trip to the seaside, author Sally Grindley and illustrator Barbara Vagnozzi manage to incorporate pretty much a full house of things that children love to spot on a journey: buses, diggers, tractors, helicopters, and even a hot air balloon. There’s plenty of time to enjoy the beach before the sleepy journey home, too. It can be extremely frustrating to pick up a rhyming book and discover that the scanning is lazy – there’s no danger of that with Grindley, who knows how to produce perfectly rhythmic couplets with no loss of creativity or substance whatsoever.
