    Girl meets lobster. Girl loves lobster. But can girl save lobster?

    That’s the question at the center of this sweet and sassy picture book about Lucy, her shell-y friend Sherman, and the seafood-loving town they inhabit.

    Lucy loves Sherman from the moment they meet at Flotsam’s Fish Market. Oh sure, he’s an eighteen-pound, eighty-year-old crustacean, but he’s also polka dotted. And blurble-y. And he smells like the ocean! Unfortunately, Nana is not hooked on the idea of a pet lobster.

    Things only get worse when Lucy meets Chef Pierre and discovers that Sherman’s fate is on a plate! She must rescue Sherman, even if it means getting into hot water with all the grownups. So Lucy takes action. But will the efforts of one little girl be enough to save Sherman from the bib and butter?

    As humorous as it is inspiring, Lucy Loves Sherman explores an unlikely, yet utterly charming friendship, and the challenge and thrill of finding your voice and being an activist.

Her hobbies include reading, 1980s movies, and travel. She’s the author of the picture books Mind Your Monsters and Hypnosis Harry. She lives in Stuart, Florida, with her husband and two children.

    Meg Walters grew up in Rochester, New York, and is an illustrator and designer who received her degree in illustration from Syracuse University. She is a member of SCBWI.
