Susan's father is a lobster fisherman, and one Saturday morning he lets Susan come on the boat with him. They empty their traps together, and Susan sees all different sea creatures-rock crabs, starfish, sculpins, and more. Wonderfully illustrated in vibrant colors by Brenda Jones, Lobster Fishing on the Sea has a simple storyline and incorporates information about lobster fishing and marine life.
