The Stalking Seagulls

Are coming to a beach near you April 20, 2021

One boy. One sandwich. One hungry flock of seagulls. Armed with his beastly beach balls and bucket blockade, Alec strives to safeguard his sandwich. In this battle of wits, one clever counterattack stands between Alec and a fun-filled day at the beach. THE STALKING SEAGULLS will engage the reader in this playful power struggle between boy and bird with an outcome neither one anticipates.

Great book for teaching figurative language! Cute story that kids can relate to. Who hasn’t encountered stalking seagulls at the beach? My students laughed out loud as I read it.
