Take a look inside The Wide, Wide Sea

Next month we’re absolutely delighted to be publishing The Wide, Wide Sea, written by author and wild-swimmer Anna Wilson and illustrated by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize winner Jenny Løvlie – an inspiring and moving picture book about protecting wildlife from plastic pollution.

And today we’re very pleased to be sharing an early preview of this beautiful book!

When a young child forges a special connection with a seal on a trip to the seaside, their imagination takes them on an unforgettable journey. Through their eyes, we have a chance to explore everything the amazing beach and wide, wide sea has to offer . . . until suddenly a violent storm blows in. The next morning the beach is ugly . . . and covered in litter. Whose fault is it? And who can fix it? Together, the child, their grandmother, and the rest of the community clean the beach, and the child makes a promise to the seal that things will change for the better.

Beautifully illustrated, and with a moving message of conservation at its heart, The Wide, Wide Sea will inspire and delight children who love wildlife.
