When MP becomes a senior citizen, she hopes to be as plucky as the grandmother in Katie Clark’s popular Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck and Grandma Drove the Snowplow series. If you’re familiar with the Brunswick author’s books, you know her lovable protagonist is a dedicated problem solver. Grandma is ready to do whatever it takes to help her community, no matter the obstacle.
Clark’s latest installment, Grandma Drove the Lobsterboat, finds Grandma and her grandson Billy, enjoying a leisurely Labor Day boat ride. The duo is having a fabulous time, until the weather changes dramatically. The boat’s captain is feeling seasick, and Billy can’t reach his uncles for help. What’s a grandmother to do? Man the lobsterboat, of course! Kids will giggle as Grandma charts a clumsy course in hopes of delivering lobsters to her town’s annual Lobster Bake.
