Publisher Description

David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit. But then one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home - and he hears the sea trapped inside. 'Come out, sea, come out,' he says softly. 'I won't hurt you.' This beautifully illustrated story by award winning author Margaret Wild captures the magic of a child's fantasy world.
