About the Story

Angela and Old Tom head off to the beach with their flippers and snorkels. Angela stretches out on the sand to catch some sun and Old Tom, who has never been to the beach before, and is eager to see the sights, goes off to play...     

A day full of unexpected and thrilling adventures ensues for Leigh Hobbs' loveable Old Tom.

Hilariously read by Story Box Library favourite Fiona Harris, Old Tom at the Beach is a delight!
