A journey home from Granny’s house turns into a big adventure when Ebb and Flo have to camp out for the night. They think they’ve found a sea monster – but sea monsters don’t really exist … do they?

Review by Stacey

Ebb and Flo and the Sea Monster is the latest book in the Ebb and Flo series by author Jane Simmons. Ebb the dog and Flo a little girl have just been visiting Flo’s Grannie who tells them a story about a mysterious sea monster (like Nessie). When it is time to go home, via a little boat across the water the pair look out for the monster.

Unfortunately, the tide is going out quickly and they become stranded but can make it to a little island where they settle down for the night until they see a large shadow that is getting bigger, could it be the sea monster?

The Ebb and Flo books have been around for quite a while and have been re-released by Graffeg for the next generation of readers. I love these books, nearly as much as I loved Jane Simmons’ ‘Daisy Duck’ books that I read to my children. They have an old-fashioned quality to them, whilst proving an adorable story, and contain a wonderful friendship between a little girl and her dog.

This would make the most perfect bedtime story – It might have ‘sea monster’ in the title but there is nothing scary within, what you do get is an adorable tale that I can see being asked for over and over again.
