9781416958888: Ballyhoo Bay

Welcome to Ballyhoo Bay, where Mira Bella the artist teaches painting and sculpture to grannies and kids. Sun, sea, sand, and sky - what could be more fun?

Until one gray day a billboard goes up, announcing a high-rise building and all kinds of stuff. No more sand or seashells or painting or fun. And absolutely no children and wildlife allowed.

Mira Bella is not one to take this plan lightly. But despite Mira Bella's conviction, can art save Ballyhoo Bay?

Mom's Choice Award winner and E.B. White Read Aloud Award recipient Judy Sierra has created a modern fable for the ages, celebrating art, nature, and community. Derek Anderson's vibrant and buoyant illustrations are as close as you can get to a day at the beach without actually being there.

Come put your toes in the sand at Ballyhoo Beach!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—Mirra Bella, who teaches art on Ballyhoo Beach to children and grannies, as well as pelicans, otters, seals and crabs, seagulls and squids, is stunned one day when a signpost appears announcing that the beach will be closed-a developer plans to build penthouse apartments and a casino. Mirra Bella draws up a plan to leave the beach as it is for all to enjoy and presents it to the town council. Her idea is overwhelmingly adopted, and the recycled-art fair takes place the next day as planned. Lively, humorous acrylic cartoons have a buoyancy that captures the sparkle of the seaside setting and the exaggerated antics of the characters. This upbeat ecological message is delivered with plenty of panache. Told in rhyming couplets, the story reads aloud well.—Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
