George doesn't want to spend the whole night moonbathing alone. But then the strangest creature he has ever seen comes out of the sea. At first it seems that they will never be able to understand each other, but a few lines in the sand help them speak without words. And then they realise that there are some things you don't need language for.
A beautifully written and illustrated story of friendship from the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of The Sea Tiger.
