Burgess's Seashore Book for Children is indeed a wealth of information about the seashore. It is fun to explore the coast from the eyes of a mouse, a skunk, and a fox. The only draw back (for me) was the constant bickering by the animals. They banter back in forth in every chapter but there is a point when the bickering gets tiresome and tedious. Otherwise a fine book and I would still read more of his work.
