Beside the Sea by Windy Hollow Books


Nan and me beside the sea. Is it time? Soon.

A grandmother and child eagerly await some special visitors.

However, it soon becomes rescue time when some lost baby turtles are in danger. Everyone is needed to save the day. Will they save the babies in time?

The wonder of welcoming nesting turtles ashore comes beautifully to life in this gentle story of family, community and caring for the environment.

Kerri is a Sunshine Coast (Qld), based writer with a background in teaching. Her debut picture book Beside the Sea was inspired by news reports of baby turtles confused by light pollution. She hopes the book will raise awareness of this worldwide problem and help children to see environmental issues are manageable when everyone works together to find solutions.

Jess Racklyeft is an award-winning illustrator and author based in Melbourne. While she lives in the city now, she grew up with a mermaid life - spending most of her time in or by the sea.
