There are almost as many stories about the sea as there are pebbles on the beach. Title is a book for anyone who has been captivated by the crash of waves on sand, thrilled to the exploits of pirates or delighted in an ice cream at the end of the pier. Answering such questions as what to look for in rock pools, where best to spot a puffin, or find a fossil, and how sand is made, Title and is bursting with facts, fables, history and mystery about Britain s seaside and coast.
