Once Upon a Tide by Tony Mitton, Illustrated by Selina Young
Beach books are a favorite of ours. Juliet really gets into the crabs, starfish, and seagulls and enjoys pointing them out every time we turn the page. In this book, two girls have an adventure on the beach in which they build a boat, sail away, land on an island, dig up buried treasure, get chased by pirates, sail home, and then live on the shore forevermore. Juliet's favorite part is a big whale that chases the pirates away.
