Review quote

"Gordy and the Ghost Crab invites readers to share a beach day adventure like no other. While clever rhymes mimic the rhythm of the ocean waves throughout the tale, the appearance of a strange creature from the depths of the sand propels a young boy, Gordy, into the mysterious world of the ghost crab. Before he knows it, Gordy is transformed from being leery of their sharp pincers to acting as a protector of one new little burrowing friend. Blending sea life curiosity with an act of compassion, this story is sure to become a favorite for youth of all ages, from the read-to-me crowd on up."

Jean Alicia Elster, award-winning author of the Joe Joe in the City series, Who's Jim Hines? and The Colored Car.
