Henry Holt, 1993
This morning Tommy sets off with his Uncle Russ on his uncle's lobster boat, the Nellie Jean, to help him check his traps. They measure the lobsters to see if they're big enough to keep (the small ones, and any carrying eggs, get thrown back). They put fresh bait in empty traps and replace the broken ones. After checking more than one hundred traps, it's time to head back to shore and sell their catch.
Lobster Boat depicts an intriguing way of life in which preservation of both an industry and the environment go hand in hand.
