Lula and the Sea Monster
My son loves reading stories about octopuses 🐙and squid 🦑, so we were delighted to find Lula and the Sea Monster, a picture book that we’ve been reading over and over for the past 2 weeks.
Lula lives with her family on a popular beach dotted with rocky tide pools. However, their home and the adjacent beach is slated to be torn down to make way for a coastal highway. Just before construction commences, Lula finds a curious little creature in a rock pool, a tiny squid who affectionately curls around her finger, so tiny in fact he’s no bigger than a bean. As such, Lula names him Bean, and visits him everyday- and with each passing day, her little friend Bean continues to grow in size.
A sweet story of friendship and perseverance as together, Lula and Bean find a way to stop the highway and keep their homes and friendship intact.
