Smug Seagull

We rated this book:


Smug likes to swipe snacks from people on the beach all day long. He’s one of the best swipers around and he lets everyone know it. But when a crab swipes something from Smug will he lose his swiping abilities forever or find new ways to get food from people?
The writing style is wonderful in this book. I like all the onomatopoeia words when Smug swipes something. The humor is so well done that he had my children laughing and wanting to read it over and over again. I do like that Smug found a new way to get food.
The illustrations are perfect for a book set at the beach. I liked how some illustrations were lots of small panels and others were a large spread. I could feel the ocean breeze and imaging myself sitting on the beach with seagulls coming after my snacks, which has happened to me in real life.
My six-year-old liked the book because it was funny and my three-year-old thought the seagull swiping things was great.
I would recommend this book for ages three to eight.
