Based on a real family’s experiences, Lobstering with my Papa is the gentle yet captivating story of Mark, a young boy enjoying his annual visit with his very capable grandparents for the month of July on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. Papa Herb and Granny live in Menemsha, the island’s traditional fishing village, where they go lobstering each summer. Mark’s excitement about the fulfillment of his grandfather’s promise to teach him how to lobster drives the action of this story. Learning about lobstering cradles the deeper story of how a steadfast family, through word and deed, passes on cherished values – patience, hard work, and taking time each day to think – the lifelong gifts of straightforward Papa Herb and dependable and subtle Granny. Billie Hancock’s clear, straightforward writing style and Joan Walsh’s evocative illustrations embrace this delightful tale that will touch the heart of anyone who knows the joy of ‘messing about in boats’ or who has tasted the sweetness of a Vineyard summer.
