A hilarious, gnarly beachside picture book illustrated by the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of THE ADVENTURES OF BEEKLE: THE UNIMAGINARY FRIEND and AFTER THE FALL.
Dude! You have to read this book.
It's totally about this platypus and this beaver who are friends. They want to go surfing but, dude, there's this shark who's in the ocean, too.
But don't worry. This shark approaches and - dude! - you'll never guess what happens.
