Splash, Anna Hibiscus!
This is the second picture book about Anna Hibiscus, a child of dual heritage, who lives in Africa with her extended family. The whole family is at the beach and Anna is desperate ‘to splash in the laughing waves’. She wants to share this experience but everyone is busy and none of her family responds to her repeated entreaties to join her. At last, irrepressible Anna takes matters into her own hands and soon the whole family is rushing to join in the fun.
