Ava Anne Appleton - Catching a Wave by Wendy Harmer
Published by Scholastic Australia
Ava Anne Appleton and her family have such exciting adventures as they travel around Australia in their camper van.
When the family arrives in the little seaside town of Crescent Cove, Ava meets Cody, who tries to teach her how to surf. The two discover a baby seal that has a plastic bag tangled around its back flippers. So Ava and Cody decide to hold a meeting to ask the whole town to take action and use environmentally safe shopping bags, instead of plastic bags.
Lovely, gentle line and wash illustrations by Andrea Edmonds convey the setting, and the personalities of all the characters. A great story for girls aged 6 to 8 years.
