Lobstah Gahden
Written by Alli Brydon & EG Keller
Illustrated by EG Keller

This educational and funny book follows the story of Walter, the lobster who is competing against his neighbor, Milton, in the annual Swell Gahdens contest. But what happens when trash and pollution start destroying all of Milton and Walter’s hard work? They work together to solve the problem! 

This picture book is a fun read since the entire book is written in an over-the-top “wicked awesome” Boston accent. The ending of the book includes “lobstah” fun facts, ways that children can help reduce ocean pollution, and organizations that are helping Walter, Milton, and their neighbors!
