About the Book



"Surf's up! Not yet, Dude! Books are boring! Not this one! Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend the day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer as he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can't help but get curious. Before you can shout 'Surf's up!' both frogs are sharing the same adventure, that is, until they get to the beach."--Provided by publisher.



Book Synopsis



It's a wild ride on the sea of imagination, and a rousing high-five to the power of reading.
-Publishers Weekly, starred review

Surf's up, Bro! Not yet, Dude. Books are boring. Not this one!

Newbery Award Winner Kwame Alexander's bouncy ode to the joy of reading.

Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend a day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer while he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can't help getting pulled in--literally. Before you can shout "Surf's up!" both frogs are sharing the same adventure-- that is, until they get to the beach. Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and illustrator Daniel Miyares join forces to give readers a wild ride, celebrating the joys of summer and reading.



Review Quotes




"With their strategic use of color and line, the illustrations work well with Alexander's snappy, spare text (all in dialogue) to create a high-energy tribute to the power of a good book."-- "The Horn Book"
