A brother and sister spend their day playing on the beach by a rock pool. They create their own tiny marine world in a bucket and, with its wildlife, shells, oil and even a tin can, it is a microcosm of the larger world outside.
With a series of stunning watercolours, the multi award-winning Michael Foreman makes clear his underlying concern about pollution within the environment.
