A Lowcountry Family Tradition

2016 INDIES Winner
Gold, Picture Books, Early Reader (Children's)

Crabbing is a story about young boys learning from their grandfather about the coastal tradition of catching crabs during an eventful day on a saltwater creek. Tilda Balsley's realistic yet poetic depictions coupled with Monica Wyrick's watercolor illustrations provide a glimpse into the diversity of life along the backwaters of the lowcountry. Crabbing is an intriguing "how-to" for children and evokes nostalgic reminders for readers who have enjoyed the challenge of catching blue crabs.
