The sea monster/ by Chris Wormell
It is a sad picture book and everyone is lonely in it. I thought it was written by a Russian writer, so sad it is.... There is a lonely sea monster, a lonely fisherman and a boy with a dog who sails a boat on the beach. The story reminded me of a Slavic mythological spirit of water (Vodyanoi, picture is attached) who lives in solitude under the water, drowns beautiful women and always sings songs about how"it would be great to have any company but frogs and leeches". In the end, the fisherman gets a company of a boy and a lonely sea monsters gets a trophy : the boy's boat......
