Harry the dog gets too hot at the beach so he goes in search of shade when a wave crashes over him and covers him in seaweed, now he has lost his family and no one even knows he is a dog (they think he is a sea monster). Harry's story is sweet and comes full circle, plus, while the protagonist has character, he behaves entirely dog-like. The illustrations are done in pencil and watercolor and depict the same character the story does for Harry. Only the end pages are single spreads and text is separate from the images, running in the white space beneath the pictures. A good story hour read, plus large, simple text for young readers up to 1st grade.

The Harry book series hold a special place in my childhood as my brother's name is Harry and so we used to read them all the time and make pretend that my brother was Harry the dog. In this book, Harry decides to sit in the shade when a wave crashes over him and he is covered by seaweed and cannot find his family. I find these stories to be very entertaining and fun!

I love Harry the Dirty Dog and this is just as good. Harry gets covered in sead weed and mistaken for a sea monster. Funny, classic illustrations.

Harry gets lost at the crowded beach, where every family seems to have the same umbrella. Not a terribly interesting book, but nice for fans of Harry the Dirty Dog. Preschoolers to grade one.

In this story of the beloved spotted pooch, Harry is by the Sea--and trouble follows him there, too! Poor Harry tries everything to keep cool after his family drives him out from underneath their umbrella. Harry's zany escapades to find shade will keep the reader laughing. All ends happily for our hero. A must for your Harry Collection (and I KNOW you have one).
