I've posted a couple of photographs of The Ogre on the beach in Cleveleys here and here. The sculpture is all part of a larger installation along the seafront, telling the tale of The Sea Swallow and the Mythic Coast.
Anyway I was tidying the bookshelves at the charity shop the other day when I found the book to go along with the public art, I was delighted. Written by Gareth Thompson, illustrated by Hannah Megee and published by Foxtail the book tells the story of Mary and her bid to save her town from being lost to the sea.
It's a really lovely book, beautifully written and illustrated, with lots of nice touches such as including the petrified forest into the story. I'm so glad to have spotted it.
