Told in rhyming verse, the story is a quiet study of life by the sea. The illustrations, which rely on grays, browns, and tans, perfectly capture the chill and damp of a blustery day. . . . Librarians and educators will appreciate that the book provides a gentle counterpoint to the plethora of “sunny days at the beach” books. . . Perfectly captures the mood of the day.
*Kirkus Reviews*

One to Watch: "exquisitely illustrated […] I could hear the waves crashing and the wind whooshing on every page […] Granny and Bean perfectly encapsulates the joy of being out in the wild while knowing you are safe with someone you love."
*The Bookseller*
