A Trip to the Beach
by Gwyn Perkins
Today’s the day – Iggy’s going to catch a wave without any help! Or at least that’s what Grandad thinks. Iggy isn’t quite so sure.
What follows is an unforgettable beach adventure that involves the best sandcastle ever built, fish and chips for lunch, lots of boats and a few perfect waves.
Here is a story about the unique beauty of the Australian coast, the universal magic of the ocean and the importance of finding your own way. The last adventure in the award-winning Iggy and Grandad series.
