Source: received from Netgalley and North South Inc in exchange for an honest review. This in no way alters my opinion or review of the book.

Surf's Up
Surf's Up by Kwame Alexander
Publisher: North South Inc.
Publication Date:  February 1, 2016


Format: Ebook



Goodreads Synopsis: 
Surf's up! Not yet, Dude! Books are boring! Not this one! Bro and Dude have very different ideas about how to spend the day at the beach. But as Bro continues to gasp and cheer as he reads his book (Moby Dick), Dude can't help but get curious. Before you can shout 'Surf's up!' both frogs are sharing the same adventure, that is, until they get to the beach. Newbery Medal Winner, Kwame Alexander, and Daniel Miyares have joined forces to give little listeners a wild ride.
This was an adorable book about two frogs, one who wants to surf and another who wants to finish his book. As they travel to the beach Bro (the reading frog) gets so excited about his book and how it is going, so much so in fact, that Dude starts to get interested. 

This was such a cute concept, show young readers the thrill of reading through these two different friends. I think that parents and young readers will really like this. It is brightly colored and an easy read. Although I have a feeling that parents might end up hearing a lot of "bro" and "dude" in their household afterwards.

Still a very cute tale and I love a book about reading books.
