'Gosper's engaging rhyming text explores the things that a child and her mother discover together, while Goldsmith has created glorious seascapes using watercolour and pencil images collaged together to create a three-dimensional effect that adds visual impact. There are treasure ships, mermaids' jewels, imaginative play and a whole lot of love in this celebration of family time spent together in the natural world' CANBERRA TIMES
