Ben and his dog Belly live by the sea, and the sea is doing strange things. The fishermen were bewildered. "The last time the water was this wild," said one, "was the Great Storm of '37." But no one had ever heard of the sea moving houses around at night...
Something had to be done. So Ben and Belly put out to sea under the cover of darkness to solve the mystery.

"The charm of Ross Collins' The Sea Hole is that he knows how children translate the mundane into the magical; and never has the sea looked so turbulent and mysterious as in his illustrations." Night and Day
"Wonderfully detailed illustrations (each a piece of art in it's own right) enhance the captivating narrative." Families North
