Picture Book Review–There Might Be Lobsters

Another Picture Book Review by Jean Matthew Hall

It is the height of summer in my area. So, I’m still reviewing picture books about summer fun. Here is one of my favorites.

61RZW3yjFKL._AC_US218_There Might Be Lobsters is written by Carolyn Crimi and delightfully illustrated by Laurel Molk. It was published in 2017 by Candlewick Press.

I love the main character in There Might Be Lobsters. Sukie reminds me of myself as a child. I was never very keen on the beach or any bodies of water. I liked the warm, dry sand under my feet, thank you very much! Sukie seems to share my philosophy.

She imagines all sorts of scary things at the beach—including pinchy lobsters, UNTIL…

You’ll have to read this adorable tale of love, courage and friendship to find out what that UNTIL was.

The soft images add much to the themes of the story, while still transporting us to a sweltering day at the beach, in my opinion.

This is another great read for a hot summer afternoon.
