Clem is an explorer, a collector, a protector of the seas! Treasure hunting on her beloved beach, she stumbles across Crab, his claw stuck in a plastic bag. Crab will be much safer and happier in the city with Clem, but doesn’t he belong on the beach?
A stunningly illustrated timely tale of cleaning up our beaches, with the message that every small action helps.
Fiona Lumbers has drawn on anything and everything from an early age and always insisted she would be an artist when she grew up. Fiona moved to London in 2000 to study for an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art. A combination of her obsession with picture books and the arrival of her first son led her down the path of illustration and she hasn't looked back since. Nothing makes her happier than splashing watercolours and inks and conjuring up new characters - often influenced by the exploits of her two sons.
A beautiful and timely tale
This inspiring picture book gently reinforces the message that everyone has a responsibility to care for the environment and demonstrates that lots of small actions can have a big impact.
An inspiring picturebook… a warm and hopeful story with a message about nature and plastic pollution.
The Sunday Times
A lovely story, and an important one, told so effectively in Fiona Lumbers’ carefully chosen words and beautiful illustrations.
‘Lumbers’ skillful, pleasingly composed pencil, crayon, and watercolor illustrations and simple but expressive text are perfectly suited to her story, capturing the ingenuous earnestness of her young protagonist… This sweet, feel-good tale about a can-do kid is in tune with its audience.
