Come Away From the Water, Shirley


A girl’s imagination goes wild on a family trip to the beach.

When Shirley goes to the beach with her family one day, her parents see it as an opportunity to kick back, put their beach chairs in the sand, knit, read the newspaper, and drink cold beverages from their thermos. Shirley, meanwhile, sees the ocean as an open door to the possibility for great adventure: battling pirates, digging up treasure chests, and conquering the world as the sun sets to the west.
