All she wants to do is 'splash' in the waves, but will anyone join her?In the second Anna Hibiscus picture book from Atinuke and Lauren Tobia, Anna has left her mango tree ... and she's at the beach! 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?
