Aimed at children aged two to five, this is a lovely book about the value of friendship.

Looking to have the best swimming day ever, Angry Owl packs every item imaginable to enjoy a great day at the beach.

But, when he finds his load too heavy to fly with, and nose dives into the local pond, he discovers that in his bid to avoid the crowded watering hole he forgot the most important thing necessary for the best swimming day ever – friends.

Simple pictures, large print and easy language make this both great for reading to very small children or the perfect first reader for little ones coming to grips with their ABCs.
