Detailing the perfect beach getaway, this charming picture book uses individual postcards to tell the tale of one family's adventures at Crabby Spit. In the spirit of Where's Waldo?, beach items such as a hat, towel, and sandals are lost--and children must find them with the help of the mischievous family dog, Rajah. Humorous and warm family vacation activities are depicted, including paddling, surfing, and finding treasures.
