A First Book of the Sea is one of Margaret's favourites of 2018.


A spellbinding collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores, this book is sure to enthral and inspire readers of all ages. With this book, children can swim alongside dolphins and flying fish, pore over rockpools and sail from pole to pole and back, learning about everything from phosphorescence and plankton to manta rays and puffins - all in the comfort of their bedroom.

Emily Sutton's exquisite watercolours capture the breathless excitement of a child's first glimpse of the sea, the majesty of ancient trading ships and the sheer, staggering wonder of the humpback whale.
