Product Details


“Each adventure is related in its own chapter, but the episodes do string together into a cohesive narrative. The humor often relies on an Alice in Wonderland—style logic…This title could work well as a read-aloud, providing ample opportunities for discussing the natural world and interpersonal (or inter-animal) dynamics….” —School Library Journal, July 2018

“There is a homely wisdom and a pithy philosophy in the Mr. Lobster stories which adults as well as children enjoy. This book shows, too, a genuine love of out of doors; sea and woods and meadow…. So convincing are the haunts of Mr. Lobster and his friends that the city dweller reading this book feels that he too, has withdrawn for a little into a place where he is aware of sunrise and sunset, stars and tides, as a part of the beauty and eventfulness of life.… The drawings by Marion Wakeman have distinction and beauty and are keyed to the humor and imagination of the text.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A very entertaining story of a lobster whose curiousity led him far afield and into all sorts of adventures. Delightfully illustrated.” —Kirkus Reviews
