Three by the Sea is a beautifully illustrated book, about a dog, mouse and cat who live in a beach hut. I absolutely love the seaside and actively seek about seaside/ sea themed books to read to them children. They don’t mind either way, but I figure that if I read them something that interests and excites me then I will read it better and we will all enjoy it a lot more.
Without a shadow of doubt this is the most enjoyable kids book I have read in ages, its all about friendship and making concessions to others. The setting is full of imagery and there’s an added bit of humour. Mini Grey is an award winning children’s author and illustrator and I can see why. The book sparked lots of discussion between me, Fifi and Toddler Boy and I can see it becoming a firm favourite on our bookshelf for a few years to come. It’s worth a look at for the wonderful illustration and imagery surrounding the cat with an eye patch. Just wonderful! You can actually read it yourself on the Random House website before you buy!
We were lucky to be given a review copy by Random House who never fail to produce lovely, lively and interesting childrens books. Three by the Sea is available in hardback for around ten pounds and its ISBN is 9780224083621. You can buy a copy here.
