Good Beach, Good Night

An evocative and beautiful bedtime picture book that distils the essence of summer at the bach—creaky old bed, sandy feet, waves hush-hushing and a shell under the pillow.
This simple poem by internationally renowned Joy Cowley transports the reader instantly to a childhood summer.
Summer holidays by the sea have a rhythm all their own. With a few well chosen images Cowley takes us straight to the end of a long hot day, with beach treasures under the pillow, the sound of the waves and the salty smell of the sea.
