Este hermoso libro está dirigido especialmente a los lectores infantiles y presenta una historia basada en un relato del gran escritor mexicano Octavio Paz. Cierto día, un niño viaja a la costa con sus padres para ver por primera vez el mar. Allí, en la playa, una ola decide salir del agua y el niño le tiende su mano para que lo acompañe hasta la arena. La ola quiere acompañarlo a casa y para lograrlo se oculta en el tren. Cuando llega al hogar de su amigo, lo inunda todo con luz, colores, aire, risas y alegría. A partir de ese momento, ella y el niño inician una jornada de maravillosos descubrimientos. Sin embargo, como todo el mundo sabe, el carácter de las olas es muy voluble y pronto sus cambios de carácter comienzan a inquietar al niño y a sus padres. ¿Cómo se resolverá todo?
