What a wonderful book!
Roger was about twenty months old....
'A night or two later the storm had blown itself out and I took Roger again to the beach, this time to carry him along to the waters edge, piercing the darkness with the yellow cone of our flashlight. Although there was no rain the night was again noisy with breaking waves and insistent wind. It was clearly a time and place where great and elemental things prevailed.'
The edition I have just bought has beautiful photographs by Nick Kelsh and says on the front cover 'Words and pictures to help you keep alive your child's inborn sense of wonder, and renew you own delight in the mysteries of earth, sea and sky'. There is something captivating on every single page of this book. A treasure.
