For the majority of Australians, loving summer means going to the beach.
Reader and author Sally Rippin tells us that one of her favourite things to do in summer is eat ice-cream, just like Billie B Brown. But that is not the only thing that Billie B does the day her family visits the beach. Billie B wants to make the ‘biggest, most beautiful sandcastle anyone has ever seen’.
What happens when Billie B sees some other children making a castle that is bigger than hers? Will Billie overcome her shyness to befriend the girls? And… just what exactly is inside the treasure that she finds?
