DOWN UNDER THE PIER is now available for pre-order!
AVAILABLE APRIL 2020
THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT WE KNOW—TO SLIP DOWN THE STAIRS WHEN THE TIDE IS LOW, AWAY FROM IT ALL, WHERE ALMOST NOBODY GOES.
There’s lots of fun to be had up on the pier—the Ferris wheel, cotton candy, the carousel—but it’s down under the pier, at low tide, where the real magic can be found.
Children are invited to experience the fantastical realm of the natural world, from mussels and barnacles to kelp and seashells, all hiding mere steps away from the lights and games of the pier.
A brief guide to some common creatures of the intertidal community can be found at the back of the book, the opportunity for learning a welcome supplement to Beckerman’s poetic adventure and Sumpter’s equally enchanting illustrations.
Available from Amazon and Indiebound
