Monsters in the Briny by Lynn Becker is about what do you do with a grumpy kraken, a sickly sea serpent, and a tearful gigantic tortoise? You sing them a tune, of course! And not just any tune — A sea shanty tune!
Following the sea shanty rhyme of What Do You Do With . . ., a ship's crew of sailors has to contend with a coterie of mythical sea creatures, all demanding comfort and attention.
As each creature threatens to swamp the ship, the quick-thinking crew knows just what to do to save the day, from serving pancakes to mopping a sweaty forehead to sharing an umbrella to keep the rain away. But what happens when the sailors have had enough?
Back matter in this funny book for kids includes information about the sea creatures featured, music and lyrics, along with a brief history of sea shanties.
This is a very fun and funny book for kids and families and can open up a new way to enjoy family time: singing sea shanties!
