Product Details


There’s ample humor in the watercolor, acrylic, and ink illustrations and heaping doses of compassion, too. Sly inclusions of lobsters in the details, in particular, will provoke readers’ laughter as they cheer on Sukie and applaud Eleanor’s pluck and patience. Just "beachy."
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This charming story shows how fear can hold us back, and how love can save the day…The illustrations, done in watercolor, acrylic, and pen-and-ink, beautifully capture the feel of the seaside. Crimi’s latest is a warm-hearted lesson in how to overcome paralyzing fears by putting others first.

This might promote some empathy in bold kids who scoff at the timid as well as some reassurance for the uncertain beachgoer, and it could lead to a rousing discussion of overcoming fears.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

In Molk’s watercolor and ink illustrations, great swaths of sand and sky set off the humor of Sukie’s beleaguered expression and tongue-in-cheek details such as the image of a lobster on a beach bag. Charming illustrations combine seamlessly with the text to create a seasonal treat as refreshing as ice cream with sprinkles on a day at the beach. Perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing.
