Anna Hibiscus is at the beach and all she wants to do is SPLASH! In the second Anna Hibiscus picture book from Atinuke and Lauren Tobia, Anna has left her mango tree...and she's at the beach! Phew, it is hot. But what better way to cool off than by playing in the jumpy, splashy waves? "Come and splash in the waves with me!" shouts Anna Hibiscus. But everyone, including Grandmother and Grandfather, Chocolate, Benz, Wonderful, Joy, Clarity and Common Sense, is much too busy to wave-jump! So, it's just Anna Hibiscus and the white waves. "Oh! Oh! Oh!" Anna shouts happily and, soon, her happy cheers bring everyone to the water. "Yippeee!" they all shout, jumping in the waves, "Why didn't you call us?" It is a great summer read for little children! This is the second stand alone picture book title for Anna Hibiscus from acclaimed storyteller Atinuke and illustrator Lauren Tobia. It is a delightful story set against a contemporary African backdrop in the midst of a huge, happy family. Lauren Tobia masterfully opens up Anna Hibiscus' world and creates beautifully bright, sunny art that will have you wanting to jump right into those waves yourself.
