Karen Lynn Williams "always takes readers on a worthwhile journey" (Booklist) with her critically acclaimed children's tales. A Beach Tail follows a father and son during a magical day at the beach. After Gregory draws a lion in the sand, his father tells him to stay close to it and not to wander away. So Gregory, taking his father's advice to heart, doesn't dare leave his lion-even when he draws its tail so long it extends the length of the beach.

Professional reviews

"On an outing to the beach with his dad, Greg uses a stick to draw a lion in the sand. When Dad observes that the lion needs a tail, a creative journey begins. Accompanied by sound effects of the beach, Greg, with his stick dragging in the sand, wanders down the beach. Dion Graham's narration depicts his exploratory walk along the waterline. With each whooshing sound of the waves, Graham invites listeners to anticipate the next discovery--a horseshoe crab, a gooey jellyfish, and a sand castle. Graham's calmness prevails as Greg travels far down the beach and has to use his wits and his wave-swept line to return to Dad. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
