For many coastal kids, there’s nothing more joyful than leaping off a jetty into the cool sea. For author Andrea Rowe, it’s this thrill that inspired her latest children’s picture book, Jetty Jumping

A gorgeous summer tribute to being brave and letting go, Jetty Jumping is a nod to the memories of Andrea’s own childhood and the jetty adventures that kids enjoy summer after summer. She also captures the trepidation of jetty adventures, a feeling she related well to as a child when she worried about what lurked beneath jetties. Through her own coastal childhood in Warrnambool and further saltwater adventures around Australia and the world, Andrea has gathered unforgettable jetty jumps and swims. 

Jetty Jumping introduces readers to Milla. While her friends take big, brave jumps off the jetty, Milla stays on the blistering wood, scared of what lurks below. But when Milla accidentally falls over the edge, she discovers the beauty of the deep dark sea – and her summer changes for ever.

“I can vividly remember staring though the cracks in the jetty and worrying about what lurked beneath; watching friends and my brothers leap off without any fear.  I wanted to join them, but didn’t feel quite brave enough,” Andrea said. “When you do jump, there’s something glorious about flying through the air and splashing into the water.”  

Andrea gained further inspiration for Jetty Jumping watching her own children and their friends enjoy endless summer jetty leaps. “We’ve all gathered on the jetties for end-of-school celebrations and summer day cools-offs, everyone sharing their cool flips and tricks. Jetties are an adventure park for many Mornington Peninsula kids.” 

Andrea said she hoped readers of all generations will enjoy the nostalgia of Jetty Jumping and conversations inspired by themes of bravery and friendship. Jetty Jumping will be available at all independent bookstores and Big W from January 6. You can follow Andrea on Instagram @andrearowe_coastwriter
