Surrounded By Sea


Come on shore! It's springtime on this fishing island. The daffodils are blooming, and the empty lobster traps are piled high on the wharves. Different kinds of fishing boats are moored in the harbor as their owners make final preparations before heading out to sea.

As you turn each page, watch lobstermen set traps, fishermen drag nets, clammers dig at low tide, and summer visitors enjoy the sunny beach. In words and pictures, Gail Gibbons aptly captures the passing of the seasons on this isolated island, detailing equipment for commercial fishing as well as adaptations islanders have to make because they live surrounded by sea.
