A picture book from the ever-popular Tales from Fern Hollow series of 17 titles, richly illustrated in traditional style, for ages 3-93. Now back in print from the author/illustrator's (John Patience) own imprint, Talewater Press, this new edition, published in 2019, contains the same story and illustrations as the original version.
The day for the annual seaside trip has arrived and the Fern Hollow animals are all filled with excitement. Granny Bouncer enjoys a trip to the seaside as much as anyone else but she is quietly concentrating on her knitting and, as it turns out, a good thing too!
The guard blew his whistle and Mr. Rusty the engine driver started the train. Soon they were rushing through the open countryside. The children looked out of the windows – there was a lot to see: a scarecrow, a windmill and a canal with lots of little boats on it. Meanwhile, Granny Bouncer concentrated on her knitting, occasionally pausing to pop a humbug into her mouth. Suddenly, the train puffed round the side of a hill and there was the sea, all sparkling and blue in the morning sunshine!
At Brineybeach Station the animals bustled out of their carriages and sniffed the air. It was filled with the wonderful, exciting smell of the sea. Soon everyone was down on the beach. The children and some of the more daring older animals changed into their swimming costumes. Some went for a paddle or a swim in the sea. Others watched the Punch and Judy show.
The charming Fern Hollow animal stories have remained popular since they were first published in 1980.
