"A charming tale of creativity and discovery." —School Library Journal, starred review
 
 
A creative and intelligent little boy must fight his fear and find his way back to his loving father when they become separated at the beach.


When Gregory draws a lion in the sand at the beach, his Dad warns him not to wander too far. But the sandy lion grows a tail that gets longer and longer, and soon Gregory is lost. How will Gregory find his way back to Dad?
 
This wonderful read-aloud book brings to life a summer experience that is all too familiar for young children. Rhythmic text and brilliant illustrations reveal the trip down the beach entirely from a child's point of view, and a gentle father-son bond reassures young readers as they share in Gregory's brief moment of worry at thinking himself lost and alone.
