“Mrs Armitage and the Big Wave” is written and illustrated by Quentin Blake and published in 1999 by Red Fox
“Surf’s up! Mrs. Armitage and her dog, Breakspear, paddle out to surf the Big Wave. Soon the kindly Mrs. Armitage notices that Breakspear’s little legs are getting tired–so she swims off and returns with an inflatable desert island for him to rest on. Then she notices that Breakspear looks a little hot–so she swims off again and brings back an umbrella. Soon this silly pair is loaded down with flags, a horn, megaphones, and lots of other gear. What will they do when the Big Wave finally arrives?”
