Product description

Review

Waves is beautifully written, with equally stunning illustrations. The cover alone is worthy of framing! ― The Golden Adventures

I love narrative non-fiction books (both for kids and in my own reading time) and this is a fantastic example. ― Bookish Bron

Waves is a book that should, and I would like to think will, have a special place in homes and schools everywhere. Its themes are relevant for everyone. ― Kids' Book Review
