They say one in a million lobsters is blue, and Mr. Homarus Americanus is a rare one indeed. But because he’s blue, none of the other sea creatures will speak to him. Lonely and sad, he wanders into a lobster trap, where his life will change unexpectedly for the better.

The Blue Lobster is written in fun rhyming verse, with bright and simple illustrations. Kids will learn an important lesson in not judging others by their appearance. This cute picture book is nicely done and not preachy.
