The Long Weekend
by Troon Harrison
illustrated by Michael Foreman

For his fifth birthday, James chooses to spend three days at the beach, during which his quiet adventures, with the help of his imagination, become an unforgettable treat


James's sandscapes grow increasingly imaginative--unicorns & knights in shining armour arrive on the scene

One of my favourite picture books. I love the imagination James shows & the timeless picture of childhood

The boy constructs with increasing diligence & ingenuity while basking in the comfortable companionship of his mum, who can share the gentle pleasure of his whimsical play.

Perfect for bedtime, nap time or quiet sharing, this is truly a celebration of the imagination

Soft watercolour paintings contrast the cool blue water with the warm yellow sand on the deserted stretch of beach & complement the idyllic tone of the text. A gentle reminder that summer fun does not require crowds of people or great sums of money

It imparts the mood of the beach as it drifts along. The beautiful illustrations create a mood of relaxation. I would highly recommend its calming effect at the end of a very active day
