This beautiful picture book is the follow-up to The Tiptoe Guide to Tracking Fairies, which was chosen as one of the "Best Books for Children 2009" by the Association of Booksellers for Children.

On hot summer days, the beaches are packed with all kinds of people swimming, splashing, or lying in the sun. But there are other days--magical ones--when the beach is empty. Whoosh! The wind tosses up the sand in curling eddies. Kazoom! The waves cymbal-crash against the shore. Yes! Days like these are just right for finding mermaids.
