Lobster Boat

Brenda Z. Guiberson, Author, Megan Lloyd, Illustrator Henry Holt & Company $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8050-1756-4
The creators of Cactus Hotel and Spoonbill Swamp here take readers on a lobstering expedition with a boy and his uncle. Thanks to Guiberson's direct yet descriptive text and Lloyd's lifelike graphics, readers can almost feel the moistness of the morning fog and hear the screeching of the gulls overhead and the whir of the winch raising the lobster pots. As the two-person crew checks the contents of each trap and replaces the old bait with new, readers become acquainted with the methods--and the ethics--of lobstering. Some excitement edges into the lobstermen's day as the sky darkens and the waves swell, signaling the coming of a squall. Guiberson wraps up her informative lesson with a brief description of this crustacean's annual pattern of molting, migrating and hibernating, as well as the measures taken to maintain the supply of lobsters in the sea. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
