- Author Bio
A sweet and fun and clever story about accepting yourself for who you are and being brave.
A great read-aloud picture book about a scaredy squid named Stubby (a stubby squid, rossia pacifica) who makes a BIG MISTAKE…getting a pen pal.
Intimidated by his new pen pal’s name—Razor Clam—and the extraordinary stories Razor writes about his exploits, Stubby gets carried away making up fantastic stories of his own bravery that end up putting him in hot water when something real and scary happens. But perhaps all his brave imaginings have made him brave enough to find a happy ending?
