Author(s): Martin Waddell
This is a beautiful reissue of a timeless classic. A child and her mother walk in the moonlight beside the sea. This night will become a memory as luminous and enduring as the moon itself. With unforgettable silver-washed images and gentle, flowing words, "The Big Big Sea" portrays a bond between parent and child that makes even the dark sea safe and serene. It is from the winner of the 2004 Hans Christian Andersen Medal!
