This is a magical modern fairytale designed for readers gaining in confidence. A tiny beach...An upturned boat...A whisper of smoke...When Flotsam and Jetsam are washed ashore, they soon become the best of friends. Every day brings a new adventure for the tiny pair. Join them as they battle a spiteful seagull, build a new home and rescue a very shy hermit crab. This is a brand new series. "Racing Reads" are pacy and engaging first novels for the newly-independent reader. Each book is extensively illustrated and the story-per-chapter structure is ideal for building reading confidence.
