A gorgeous picture book written with delightful humor and truly memorable characters, Poggle is perfect for toddlers with his well-observed, child-friendly adventure bursting from the seams of this story. Exploring a warm and comical friendship, not to mention exploring a warm and sandy beach, this story bounces its way to an exciting discovery.
