An audio adventure featuring the Shellies and their music. From the first 'Ahoy!' to the last 'Hush!' this is a story which all the family can enjoy tide after tide again. Imagination and fun will bob like boats upon the sea as you listen to Crabby and the gang’s latest exploits. It all began ‘once upon a tides’ when the laziness of a summers day in the garden was suddenly disturbed by a thud on the lawn. Seeking the cause of the noise led Sally on an unexpected fun filled journey to Shellie Bay. Travelling on a glider alongside the pilot (Rainbow) the pair took flight. Waiting to greet them on the shore were the merry bunch of Shellies and their cousins the Boggles. With her new friends leading the way, Sally followed the ‘footprints in the sand’ in an attempt to find the pirates lost treasure.
Along the way she uncovers the secret of why it is the singing sands sigh. Disappointed at not finding hordes of treasure and booty, Pearl reminds the troop of ‘funsters’ that sometimes nature’s treasure can be more precious. As twilight descended upon the bay Sally laid back on the sand to listen to just one more ‘Shellieastic’ song before drifting off to sleep, only to be awoken a few moments later by her mother calling out her name.
"Love this" I really like this 'Once upon a tide' thing!! :) Love the story as well. It's full of fun and enthusiastic. I listened to it like 5 times now, with my nephews and niece.
May be since one of the authors is the narrator herself, she gives it all in her voice. Music too has helped her a lot.
