Synopsis

Dude Fun with Dude and Betty by Lisa Pliscou

Whoa! Dude! Learning to read surf-speak has never been so easy, or so much fun! It's, like, totally radical! (If you need a little extra help, check out the non-bogus glossary at the back of the book.) For beach boys and surfer girls of all ages.

Reviews

Give Dude as a present to the expectant surfer parents you know, or, for that matter, to anyone with small kids who like adventure. Dude is a light, colorful lark of a tale ... just like a day at the beach. -- Los Angeles Times Book Review Lisa Pliscou has turned the familiar style into something hilarious by applying it to surf culture. -- Wall Street Journal Pliscou mimes the sincere voice and meticulous punctuation of an easy reader ( See Dude surf. Whoa! Look at Dude surf. Surf, Dude, surf ). Her humor arises from unexpected vocabulary ( Stokaboka! ), paired with earnest illustrations of Dude hanging 10, wiping out, and visiting a taco stand for a bodacious burrito. -- Publishers Weekly Truly non-bogus retro artwork in the style of 1950s Dick and Jane illustrations evokes a nostalgic sensibility with contemporary updates - including a notably multicultural cast of characters in several beach scenes. -- Kirkus Reviews
