At The Bach


An evocative and beautiful bedtime book that distils the essence of summer at the bach; creaky old bed, sandy feet, waves hush-hushing and a shell under the pillow.

This simple poem by internationally renowned Joy Cowley transports the reader instantly to a childhood summer.

Summer holidays by the sea have a rhythm all their own. With a few well-chosen images Cowley takes us straight to the end of a long hot day, with beach treasures under the pillow, the sound of the waves and the salty smell of the sea.

“Full of the warmth of friends and family, the basics of the beach and the joy of a simple holiday home.”
