Girl meets lobster. Girl loves lobster. But can girl save lobster?

That’s the question at the center of this sweet and sassy picture book about Lucy, her shell-y friend Sherman, and the seafood-loving town they inhabit.

Lucy loves Sherman from the moment they meet at Flotsam’s Fish Market. Oh sure, he’s an eighteen-pound, eighty-year-old crustacean, but he’s also polka dotted. And blurble-y. And he smells like the ocean! Unfortunately, Nana is not hooked on the idea of a pet lobster.

Things only get worse when Lucy meets Chef Pierre and discovers that Sherman’s fate is on a plate! She must rescue Sherman, even if it means getting into hot water with all the grownups. So Lucy takes action. But will the efforts of one little girl be enough to save Sherman from the bib and butter?

As humorous as it is inspiring, Lucy Loves Sherman explores an unlikely, yet utterly charming friendship, and the challenge and thrill of finding your voice and being an activist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lobster Love When Lucy sees Sherman it’s love at first sight. The problem is Sherman is an eighty-year-old lobster and he is for sale at the fish market. Easy text and bright illustrations follow Lucy as she tries everything to keep him safe. In the end it’s word of mouth and the media that save the day. Cute story to be shared with ages three to six.
