Magic Beach 20th Anniversary hardcover edition with frieze

by Alison Lester

Imagine a beach where you can swim, surf, splash through the waves, make sandcastles, hunt for treasures, explore rock-pools, fish from the jetty, and build a bonfire under the stars. Imagine a beach where adventure begins.

A bestseller and a favourite with families for twenty years, Magic Beach is now a true Australian classic.

‘In Lester’s world, it seems that both the real and the imagined have a magic all their own – the magic of life enjoyed to the fullest.’ – The Horn Book
