'This life enhancing picture book first invites young learners to join fishermen setting out to sea in the morning. The appeal of this book is to do with the quality of the colourful and energetic double spread pictures with their sharp line and the simple but effective rhythmic text. "Judder, judder, judder, as the engines shudder'...Every page has the interest and detail likely to get young children thinking and talking.'Books for Keeps
'The rhythmic text and bold illustrations will captivate children's attention and draw them in to the daily comings and goings of the harbour' Nursery World
'The text uses rhyme and rhythm to create a sense of atmosphere and the wonderful colourful illustrations are bright and bold. Young children will love looking through the details to discover a host of suprises.' Armadillo Magazine
About the Author
SUSAN STEGGALL initially trained as a graphic designer, but then became a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. Susan lives in the New Forest in Hampshire.
