Not so very long ago, on the most beautiful beach in the world, there sat a most unhappy creature. His name was Willis, and all summer long, large salty tears rolled down his cheeks and dropped into the sand.

Willis is sad because he's a sunbather with sensitive eyes but no sunglasses. So he and his friends, Bird, Snake, and Lobster, set out to earn the money needed to buy a pair. After failing ridiculously at a hodgepodge of odd jobs, Lobster comes up with a successful plan that allows them all to enjoy the bright summer days.

I liked how this book demonstrates how at first everyone may not be good at something but working together will achieve a goal. This book shows how if you are determined you will succeed which is an important message for kids. Read full review

Review: Willis

User Review  - Courtney Bowman - Goodreads

About a group of friends trying to earn enough money for a pair of sun glasses. They try to get jobs to pay for them, but failed at many of them. Finally the lobster suggested a talent show. I would want any student to read this because it is humorous and there are different lessons to learn. Read full review

About the author (2001)

James Marshall (1942?1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children's books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master's degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life's work as one of the finest creators of children's books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.
