AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This time, when Grandpa and Thomas go to the beach they swim, picnic, slide down the sand-dunes and build a sand-car. Then the weather turns stormy and the two shelter in the car, under the green umbrella, until the storm passes. This beautiful picture book for the very young follows on from the CBC Award-winning "Grandpa and Thomas" and again depicts the special relationship between grandchild and grandfather.'(Publication summary)
