An epic tale of an adventure on the high seas - and a trio of brave and helpful toys - beautifully told and
illustrated by picture-book royalty, Allan Ahlberg and Emma Chichester Clark.
Allan Ahlberg (Author)
Allan Ahlberg, a former teacher, postman, plumber's mate and grave digger, is in the super-league of children's writers. He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award winning picture books as Each Pear Plum and The Jolly Postman - both winners of the Kate Greenaway Medal. He has also written prize-winning poetry and fiction and lives in Sussex.
Emma Chichester Clark (Illustrator)
Emma Chichester Clark is one of Britain's best loved children's authors and illustrators. She is the author of the immensely popular Blue Kangaroo series and many other books, and has illustrated books by Roald Dahl, Kevin Crossley-Holland, Peter Dickinson, Michael Morpurgo and, most recently, Quentin Blake.
When a baby is swept out to the high seas, brave toys band together to bring him home again. A lyrical text recalls iconic Ahlberg works like Peepo, here with added drama and adventure. Chichester Clark's nostalgic pictures perfectly complement the text to create a classic feel. * The Bookseller *
Ahlberg's latest picturebook is about a baby whose old-fashioned pram floats out to sea and who is saved by his toys. Emma Chichester Clark's sunny illustrations of the beach and children playing bring Ahlberg's magic to life. * The Sunday Times *
