What’s the weirdest sea creature you’ve ever seen?
Did it have fins, or tentacles, or a shell?
Did it wriggle, or skitter, or stay still as a rock?
Did it sting, or cling, or hide?
Join young explorers Jack and Jenny as they hunt for strangeness in the Chesapeake Bay.
Together you’ll discover just how weird, wild, and wonderful a saltwater world can be!
When his mother tells him they're having pea soup for dinner, Jack wonders how he'll survive. Then he comes up with a plan: he'll catch his own seafood feast instead! Relying on skills learned from his grandfather, the resourceful boy embarks on a seaside adventure. In the process he learns that the only thing better than a basket full of crabs or a bucket full of clams is a heart full of appreciation for the natural wonders of the bay.
With playful prose and vivid watercolor illustrations, Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast teaches readers to value and sustain their environment with gratitude for life's little gifts.
