Summary
Reluctant to let the surf crash over him, Joe runs down the beach and has an adventure with an old boat. With dancing sunlit watercolor pictures and joyful words, Daly expresses the physicalness of a small child's fun in the sand and waves. There's a very simple story: after playing on the beach, Joe wanders away and gets lost behind a sand dune. A friendly blond lifeguard, "as cool as a coke," finds Joe and carries the kid piggyback to smiling Mom and Dad, who buy him a king-size ice-cream cone. The boy and his family are black and middle-class; that they feel at home with the whites on the beach is taken for granted. Children will see a relaxed multiracial scene. Older readers who know that this is the new South Africa will be moved by the pictures of easy integration, where just a few years ago this child would have been forbidden entry by the apartheid law. The playful story is set against the beauty of the Cape sea and sky and mountain.--
