What's Surf's Up About

Publisher Summary

Surf’s up, Bro! Not yet, Dude. Books are boring. Not this one! Newbery Award Winner Kwame Alexander’s bouncy ode to the joy of reading is available in board book format Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend a day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer while he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can’t help getting pulled in—literally. Before you can shout “Surf’s up!” both frogs are sharing the same adventure— that is, until they get to the beach. Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and illustrator Daniel Miyares join forces to give readers a wild ride in this playful board book celebrating the joys of summer and reading.
