If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
You'd see 'em wearin' their baggies
Huarachi sandals, too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Seeing that stylin chick while humming the classic Beach Boys tune has me stoked to dig out my baggies and any kind of sandal too and put on the biggest, gnarliest surfin storytime ever!
Chick's dad is a primo surfer and Chick wants to be one too. One problem, she's scared. They bought Chick a shiny new board, "it was just the right size, in a pink Chick adored." Her first time out catching a wave ended in a total wipeout and left Chick feeling rather chicken. After mustering her courage Chick tries again and has a totally rippin' ride.
Outrages, colorful illustrations by Henry Cole perfectly compliment the rhyming text. Couple this with Froggy Goes to Hawaii
and Pig Kahuna
for a wickedly gnarly time, dude.
