An agreeable tall tale about lucky Luther Tarbox, a happy man with a pure tenor voice who sings as he goes about his lobstering. Luther also has a good compass and chart aboard his boat, and one day in a fog when he's called upon to use them, along rows a woman who has lost her way. He agrees to take her to port if she waits till he's pulled his pots.
Illustrated by the Author. The earlier book, with its text by Elizabeth Griffen, made more creative use of the canine perspective, but this floppy, contortionist dog still cuts a whimsical figure as he leads youngsters on a PiedPiper tour through Parnall's gallery of elegant bird portraits.
