Splash! Anna Hibiscus Synopsis

Anna Hibiscus is at the beach and all she wants to do is SPLASH!  Phew, it is hot. But what better way to cool off than by playing in the jumpy, splashy waves? Come and splash in the waves with me! shouts Anna Hibiscus. But everyone, including Grandmother and Grandfather, Chocolate, Benz, Wonderful, Joy, Clarity and Common Sense, is much too busy to wave-jump!

So, it's just Anna Hibiscus and the white waves. Oh! Oh! Oh! Anna shouts happily and, soon, her happy cheers bring everyone to the water. Yippeee! they all shout, jumping in the waves, Why didn't you call us?

It is a great summer read for little children!
