Synopsis

The Day the Sea Went out and Never Came Back A Story for Children Who Have Lost Someone They Love by Margot Sunderland, Nicky Hancock

The Day the Sea Went Out and Never Came Back is a story for children who have lost someone they love. Eric is a sand dragon who loves the sea very much. Each day, he watches it going out and coming back. His sea is beautiful indeed to him. But one day, the sea goes out and does not come back. Eric waits and waits, but it does not come back. So he falls on the sand in terrible pain. It feels to him as if he has lost everything. After many bleak days, Eric sees a little wild flower. It is dying. Eric knows he must save it. He finds water. More and more flowers appear and so Eric starts to make a beautiful rock pool garden. And as he does, he finds the courage to feel the full pain of his loss, instead of closing his heart. He realises that his memories of his precious sea are like a special kind of treasure in his mind, a treasure he will never lose.

Reviews

The carefully worded story, with lively, meaningful illustrations, offers a wealth of opportunities to connect with the emotional intensity of loss and the painful struggle inherent in mourning and reconstruction. - Bereavement Care Sunderland's whole series is excellent. I find I recommend each one... Good writing, wonderful artwork, a real impetus to use the material. - Adoption Today A vital resource for all parents and child professionals. - Families Magazine Margot's books are digestible teaching aids for anyone working with children - a resource that would be beneficial in every school both for qualified and non-qualified staff. - Special Children
