Come away from the water, Shirley/ by John Buningham

COME AWAY FROM THE WATER, SHIRLEY by John Burningham tells the same story from two different perspectives.   The pictures and dialog on one side of each turn of the page tells of a perfectly ordinary trip to the beach from Shirley's parents perspective but the enchanting pictures with no text on the opposite pages tells what goes on in this young girl's imagination during that same perfectly ordinary trip to the beach with her parents.  A delightful book!
