Description:

"Something's Tugging on My Claw!" takes readers on a young, blue lobster's adventure to discover the culprit who was tugging on his claw. Once he solves the mystery, the blue lobster is delighted to find that a claw dropped on purpose to escape danger isn't necessarily lost forever.

“Something’s Tugging On My Claw!” is appealing to young readers from ages 3-10, and contains many valuable lessons of lobster lore... (it's) a colorful, authentic and accurately illustrated story about a young blue lobster’s adventure... " —Midwestern Book Review, Children's Watch.
"Both educational and sensational, this book should delight readers young and old... Petrie’s colorful illustrations are scientific enough to be accurate but not so complex that they become dull. Though the work is intended for younger readers, the prose is lively—many an adult wouldn’t mind reading this at bedtime... again and again." Kirkus Reviews.

This is Seatales Publishing Company's third book in its sea animal series. "Something's Tugging on My Claw!" is an engaging, rhythmic and rhyming sea animal adventure, with brightly colored illustrations and expressive characters to bring the story to life. Although this story is fictitious, all the characters tell an authentic tale of what really happens at the edge of the sea. The repetitive text and rich vocabulary make "Something's Tugging on My Claw!" a fun read-aloud for families, as well as an entertaining choice for teachers who are studying marine life in their classrooms. Although this book's target audience is preschool through fourth grade, most adults are surprised at how much they learn from reading "Something's Tugging on My Claw!," too.
