Featured children’s book set in Maine: How to Catch a Keeper
Join Luke and Layla on an adventure as Captain Tom teaches them the ins and outs of lobstering on his boat the Lucky Catch. A “Lobstering Lingo” glossary explains the specific fishing terms they learn along the way. The Lucky Catch Lobster boat is a real working lobster boat in Maine. You can learn how to catch a keeper, too!
“What a fun book! The writing is lighthearted and whimsical (while also managing to be very informative), and the illustrations are wonderful. This is a well-crafted book about a subject that’s obviously dear to the author’s heart. It makes me want to go take a ride on the Lucky Catch, or at least go find a nice lobster dinner!”
“A charming book for kids, very well written story, rich in entertainment.
Beautifully illustrated adventure on a lobster boat in Maine, it will take children on a visual journey of discovery, they will always remember. Adorable.”
“My children really enjoyed this book. The artwork is just wonderful, so well done, we all loved the art. The story is great and easy to ready for new readers. It is also a story that keeps attention for younger children but is fun enough to have older kids sit down too. Great ready and really enjoyed this book.”
“I’ve always wanted to get to the East and do some Lobstering. This book takes us on a wonderful adventure without having to be there. The illustrations are painted realistically and capture a childhood adventure. The rhymes keep the story flowing and helped my son to read it easier. A phenomenal book good for any age group.”
