Inspired by one of Elena Ferrante's earlier novels, The Lost Daughter, this is a bewitching fable for girls and boys, but also for Elena Ferrante fans of all ages. Accompanied by full-colour illustrations by Mara Cerri, The Beach At Night is a beautiful picture book narrated by a doll named Celina.

Mati is a little girl so taken by her new kitten that she forgets about her doll and leaves her on the beach. Celina endures a terrifying night, only saved by the arrival of sunrise, when her beloved Mati returns to find her.
