How the book starts
At the edge of the land where the sea begins, there are sandy beaches, mudflats and rocky shores.
It’s low tide. The beach is wide, the mudflats are exposed and the rock pools are nearly empty. As the tide comes in, the salty sea water will creep over the mudflats and fill up the rock pools, and the waves will break high up on the beach.
