The Sea Lion's Friend: is Ed Shankman and Dave O'Neill's eighth collaboration. It's the tale of an unlikely friendship between a sea lion and a sea gull, two inseparable buddies who do all kinds of fun things together. Readers will be touched by this tale of best friendship. And with a sea lion and a sea gull, as with us humans, it's their similarities, rather than their differences, that unite them. As with all Shankman & O'Neill books, the bouncing, Seussian rhymes and colorful illustrations make this a story to read again and again! With Reinforced Binding.
Ed and Dave began creating their award-winning children's books in 2008, with stories located in Boston, Cape Cod, Maine, and Vermont. They have also created books about New Orleans, Florida, and lobsters!
