I am a huge fan of picture books, especially picture story books.
My favourite being The Sea thing Child, by Russel Hoban – Walker Books
One stormy night the sea-thing child, a draggled heap of scales and feathers, is flung up on the beach. Afraid of the wild waves and the storm skies, he meets a fiddler crab with no bow and together they avoid facing their fears. Finally, though, he finds his star, his courage and his ocean self.
