New & Noteworthy News!


I recently heard from a reader who discovered Seashells by the Seashore> at a beach town in Long Island, NY. It's always fun to know where this little book shows up across the U.S.A. Although it's been around for 14 years, I still love seeing new reviews for it on Amazon.com from time to time. Dawn Publications has sold over 60,000 copies and last year printed an adorable board book for little ones as well.

Kids and parents can go beyond the pages of my interactive book on a wondrous seashell adventure. They can take the tear-out identification sheet that comes with the paperback version to the beach, leaving the book at home. When they bring back their treasures, they can follow the kids in the book, who are searching for special shells to give to their grandmother for her birthday.

The amazing shells are the abandoned homes of sea creatures called mollusks. Sometimes a shell comes to shore with a live creature inside. In the book, one of the children puts a live shell back in the water, unless he had planned to eat it, of course. (scallops, clams or oysters, e.g.).

What incredible works of art these mollusks create! And, speaking of incredible works of art, Robert Noreika's captivating watercolors take you to the beach on summer day where you can almost feel the sand between your toes. Hope though, you have a chance to experience the real thing too. Happy Summer Shelling!
