Barnacle Is Bored

We rated this book:


A barnacle on a dock bemoans his predictable, boring, existence. He watches a colorful fish swim by and imagines all the wonderful adventures he has, until barnacle sees something that makes him realize his boring life might not be so bad after all. Barnacle is Bored has the same sarcastic tone as another fun sea book, I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry. They also share a similar dark humor as the punch line of the book. The illustrations in this book are simple and whimsical and are the perfect compliment to barnacle’s tale of woe. A book of few words, this is a simple, yet humorous, story that reminds children that the grass isn’t necessarily greener on the other side.
