About The Book

We went to the seaside, Mum, Pip and me.
To play in the sand dunes and splash in the sea,
We’d have SO MUCH fun, I had it all planned!
As soon as we got there . . . I RAN FOR THE SAND!


But one little girl gets SO MUCH MORE than she bargained for after her day out at the beach – with the most hilarious consequences!

From superstar fiction author Michelle Harrison and bestselling illustrator David Tazzyman comes the first book in a laugh-out-loud series set to become a family favourite.
