At the Seaside
by Germano Zullo and Albertine
Age Range: 6-8
At the Seaside is a visual narrative of a day at the beach. There is so much to see in this large-format board book because every page is crammed with stories to find. Comical cartoon-like caricatures full of fun and humour by French artists’ Germano Zullo and Albertine allows the reader to share in all the excitement of a visit to the seaside as they follow them from page to page. One double-page spread depicts activities in the sea; as well as the usual ones of swimming, playing games, diving and so on there are some rather strange ones too. Spot the giant octopus having fun in the sea or a lady riding a giraffe! Other scenes feature the beach, a hotel or a museum.
There are so many things to observe in this wacky, fun-packed book soaked in a mass of activity and colour. There is very little in the way of text making this an ideal book for children to use for storytelling as they can talk for hours discovering all the stories that are running in parallel. At the Seaside is perfect for any family planning a trip to the seaside too.
