Jetty Jumping is a picture book that captures the challenges of childhood – and the joy of letting go – in a homage to summer. While Milla’s friends take big, brave jumps off the jetty, Milla stays on the blistering wood, scared of what lurks below. But when Milla accidentally falls off the edge, she discovers the beauty of the deep, dark sea – and her summer changes forever.
Ideal for pre-schoolers and families who love the sea.
