Interview with Kwame Alexander 25/04/18
Herbert and Hilda Hedgehog have been enjoying a book about the seaside and decide to go and see it for themselves. The pack a picnic and get the bus to the beach, where they play games and enjoy the water. Hilda loves sailing and Herbert does some surfing. They agree that holidays are great, but home is the best.
Ruth Green’s illustrations are young, bold and colourful. It’s a beautifully produced book in a small hardback format, perfect for a gift. The gentle story has a bouncy rhyme, and the tone remains sweet and upbeat throughout – no peril or beach disasters, here. A lovely book to read in the summer holidays – ideally at the beach!
