There Might Be Lobsters (Hardcover)
Who doesn’t love the beach? Sukie the dog, that’s who! Sukie thinks the beach is a very scary place “the stairs are big and sandy, and the waves are big and whooshy, and the balls are big and beachy. And besides, there might be LOBSTERS!” A fabulous book about love and friendship and overcoming our fears.— From Amy's Picks
Come on, Sukie, you can do it A little dog's paralyzing anxiety gives way to bravery when someone smaller is in need in this humorous, tenderly sympathetic story. Lots of things at the beach scare Sukie. Lots. Because she is just a small dog, and the stairs are big and sandy, and the waves are big and whooshy, and the balls are big and beachy. And besides, there might be lobsters. With endearing illustrations and a perfectly paced text that captures a timid pup's looping thoughts, here is a funny and honest read-aloud about how overwhelming the world can be when you're worried -- and how empowering it is to overcome your fears when it matters the most.
