When the waves play and go out, the sea leaves on the beach the shells that carried in itself: an unexpected surprise! This book is the tale of the meeting between a little girl and the world of the sea: at the beginning it is curiously observed from the outside, then shyly brushed and finally “played” among splashes and jokes, together with an odd group of gulls. ... Until their worlds meet in a wave that colours everything light blue, and the little girl can pick up the shells like the present of a new friend. The illustrations of this book were made with charcoal and acrylic colours, then digitally edited. Suzy Lee was born in Seoul, she lives and works in Singapore.
