If you like word play, you’ll love this book! I did! It’s so well written, AND, it’s fun! Life was good for Swashby . . . until he got next-door neighbors. He tried writing notes in the sand to scare them away, but the sea kept changing his words to make them feel welcome. Who’ll get their way – Swashby, his neighbors, or the sea? You’ll have to read to find out!
