Buddies on the Beach: A Curious Tale of Sharing the Sea with Sharks

This is the fourth book in the Tales of Curious Critters series for early readers. It continues the adventures of Rosa and Boone. This time Boone’s brother, Gus, joins them as their curiosity leads them to the ocean - the home of great white sharks.

After watching a shark attack a surfer and hearing a friend say that sharks are “man-eaters”, Gus believes he will never feel safe swimming in the ocean ever again.

Gus’ fear leads Boone and Rosa to begin to search for the truth about great white sharks with the help of a librarian, a lifeguard, a marine biologist, and a sleepover in a Shark Tunnel.

As with the other books in the series, Buddies of the Beach is also full of scientific facts and offers ways to learn more about sharks and all of the critters of the sea.

After a career as a teacher, counselor, school principal, and leadership coach, Ken is now writing and illustrating children’s books. He lives in Portland, Oregon, and travels to the beaches of Cape Cod as often as possible.
