Welcome aboard another fun packed tale from Shelie Bay where waves of fun wait on the shore to greet you. Whiz along to distant shires and dales where folklore and legend tumble by to add extra sparkle and magic to your adventure. Moments in history tiptoe side by side with music and fun. Fairies, pixies, goblins and mermaids all make an appearance as the merry pals sit around a beach bonfire telling tales from 'here and there.' Discover how a twist of fate and fun possibly assisted Sir Issac Newton in his quest to discover gravity. Listen in as Crabby, with just a jot of help from the others, attempts to explain the difference between light and sound.
After listening to the story about Jack O Lantern you may well wonder if you too have ever been 'piskie led!' With songs, Barnacle's 'old sea customs' and new friends making an appearance on the Bay this is one voyage you will want to make time and time again. Listen as the 'jolly crew' prove once more that 'Once Upon a Tides' really can come true... the 'jolly crew' prove once more that 'Once Upon a Tides' really can come true...

Another fantastic tale from 'The Shellies'
What made the experience of listening to Bookend Tales from Here and There the most enjoyable?
This is the second audio book that I've bought about 'The Shellies', and, whilst it was playing I realised what sets this series apart from many others. Firstly, the soundtrack is brilliant, but the sound effects are also fantastic. There are constant sounds of seagulls flying overhead which creates the perfect atmosphere, and is an ideal backdrop for the story.
What did you like best about this story?
I like how the story isn't just a fun and entertaining tale; it is also highly educational. The explanation of thunder and lightning is just one example.
Which character – as performed by Jennifer Pederson – was your favourite?
To be honest I really liked all of the characters. They are all very different, and portrayed extremely well by Jennifer Pederson. I suppose 'Poet' stands out simply for being so adorable!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, definitely. It's great value for money, as it's over an hour long, but, at the same time not too long that you have to come back to it.
Any additional comments?
'The Shellies' series, both the written and audio versions, are perfect for young children. They are fun, educational and highly entertaining. What more could you ask for?
