A sun-filled day promises fun for Kipper and his best pal Tiger when they embark on a jaunt to the beach. A companion piece to "Kipper's Rainy Day "(p. 1027), this short tale extols the splendors of warm sand, a sunshiny day, and a good companion-all wrapped up into one idyllic interlude. Simple, direct questions coupled with inviting lift-the-flap illustrations guide readers through an exciting day at the shore. Together, the doggie duo wrestles with obstinate beach umbrellas, erects grandiose sandcastles, and enjoys an alfresco luncheon. When their outing is topped off with an ice-cream treat, it spells canine delight. A surprise ending-think of a stealth crab and a picnic basket-provides a comic denouement to this day of sun and fun. Cheery, uncluttered drawings are toddler-perfect while the chunky flaps are a snap for little hands to maneuver. A great way to get little ones energized for a trip to the beach. ("Picture book. 2-5") (Kirkus Reviews)
