In this laugh-out-loud illustrated adventure, the sneakiest seagull on the beach meets his match when a plucky crab makes a grab for the tastiest snacks.
Get a good look, because Smug Seagull just so happens to be the best snack swiper from shore to shore. That's a fact!
Sandwiches. Pretzels. French Fries. You bring 'em to the beach, he's going to swipe 'em. But when a crab with even better swiping skills comes along, this seagull will have to decide if there are enough treats on the beach for everyone . . .
Maddie Frost's unforgettable characters and bright, kid-friendly illustrations combine in this humorous story about patience, sharing, and wicked good snacks.
We can't meet together in the store, but we can still have fun on a Saturday morning! You can join us here!

The store is not open for events at the moment, but we're still delighted to invite you to listen in on this fantastic discussion about an important figure in sports history! See below for the link to the Zoom webinar.
Lottie Dod was a truly extraordinary sports figure who blazed trails of glory in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Dod won Wimbledon five times, and did so for the first time in 1887, at the ludicrously young age of fifteen. After she grew bored with competitive tennis, she moved on to and excelled in myriad other sports: she became a leading ice skater and tobogganist, a mountaineer, an endurance bicyclist, a hockey player, a British ladies' golf champion, and an Olympic silver medalist in archery.
Little Wonder brings this remarkable woman's story to life, contextualizing it against a backdrop of rapid social change and tectonic shifts in the status of women in society. Dod was born into a world in which even upper-class women such as herself could not vote, were restricted in owning property, and were assumed to be fragile and delicate.
