Product description

Morpurgo at the seaside in full colour! Dragons, shipwrecks, giants. Brought to life by Tony Ross’s glorious colour pictures. Even better than a holiday. Every summer, Michael goes to stay at his cousins’ farm on the Welsh coast. Every year, he swims with seals, watches whales – and listens to his old grandpa’s stories. Tales of blood-red dragons sleeping in coves on Whaletooth Beach. Stories of sea captains and shipwrecks. And of the giant Sandman and his turtles, who sweep Michael off on a magical fantasy quest!

    Look Inside??

    I'm reviewing the scholastic website rather than this book in particular. When you see the words look inside, you think, great, I can see if the text or illustrations are appropriate for the children's needs. The look inside here, means you see 1 page with the dedication, copyright info and publishing date - what use is this!!

    Scholastic: You can read the entire first chapter of the book using the arrows at the top of the Look Inside pop-up box.
