Pig Kahuna by Jennifer Sattler
Fergus and his baby brother, Dink, (How can you not love the names!?!?!) spend alot of time at the beach collecting "treasures" that wash up on shore. Of course there are more in the water BUT there was a "lurking, murky, ickiness" which prevented them from going in the water. One day a extra special treasure arrives on shore....a surfboard. Since they can not use it in the water, they must find other uses for it, on land. Finally they name it "Dave"! Dink decides that Dave has lost his shine and needs to go back to the ocean.....
Love the illustrations - so funny! The story, though simple, is very original and different. Kids will really enjoy this book for just a fun, enjoyable book.
Illustrations: 5 Buckeye leaves (Made me laugh right from the cover....)
Text: 4 Buckeye leaves
End Pages: 2 Buckeye leaves (plain)
