From the author/illustrator of the award-winning There’s a Tiger in the Garden, Lizzy Stewart has created a new adventure for all to enjoy. The book is A4 sized, and the covers feel like textured linen cloth. Turn inside and the endpaper is awash with a shoal of hundreds of colourful fish. The tale features Matilda and her Dad, who enjoy each other’s company but are different in many ways. A day at the beach turns into a real adventure as Matilda and her Dad head off across the sea, map in hand, to find treasure, marked on the map with a red cross. Dad gets easily distracted, which was Matilda’s fear as they set off. He becomes fascinated and preoccupied by the wonders of the deep, fish, octopus and seahorses, whilst Matilda determines on following her map to reach their destination, trying to steer their boat swiftly to the mapped island. Having discovered said island, they disagree; Dad wants to go one way, while strong minded Matilda heads in another. Will they find treasure? Will they find each other? The ending is a great resolution. A book to enjoy within the family as well as to inspire talk, imaginative writing and art work within the classroom.
