by the illustrator of Roald Dahl books

A riotous day ensues as Mrs. Armitage and her little dog go surfing. Waiting for the big wave is boring, hot, and maybe even dangerous so the woman makes frequent trips to shore for a float, sun hats, burgers and dog biscuits, a windsock, flags, a horn, and a spear (in case of sharks). Finally the big wave comes but Mrs. Armitage spots a little girl in trouble. Of course, the resourceful surfer manages to snag the girl's swimsuit, rescue her, and get a great ride. After a celebration, its time for another go. Blake's exuberant, detailed, and comical watercolors fill this surfing adventure with fun. A lively choice for a summer storytime, this is a laugh-aloud tale for intergenerational sharing even for those who won't be catching waves themselves. Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library
