See Inside


A is for adventure that’s waiting for you the next time you want to sail into the blue... This maritime ABC breathes a real blast of fresh air into the genre. From A for Anchor and B for Buoy, from C for Cruise Ship to D for Dolphins and Zzzz for bedtime, Virginie Morgand’s gloriously illustrated book is a wonderful introduction to all things nautical for young children. Her drawings successfully combine a sixties feel with the intensity of animated cinema, bringing the pictures to life page after page.
