Wonderful bookI listened with my eyes shut and felt the 3D pictures and found myself actually disappointed when I opened my eyes, because Chris's voice led me through with such detail and enthusiasm that the pictures in my imagination were so real.Library Member

It's the little girl from the sailboat, wearing a brightly coloured t-shirt & shorts. There's also a picture of the Jolly Roger flag for you to feel. Start at the top right hand corner of the page and explore the flag. If you feel around the edge, you can tell the flag is square in shape. However, it's not quite straight, especially at the top and bottom because it's blowing in the wind. The flag is black with a picture of a white skull and cross bones on it. Can you feel the raised round shape of the skull? A skull is the bone inside a person's head.
- A picture book with braille pages and raised tactile images.
- Audio descriptions with music and sound effects in your chosen format of either CD or USB.
- An ‘Articles for the Blind’ returns label for the free and convenient return of the box.
