Summary
Come on, Sukie, you can do it! A little dog's paralyzing anxiety gives way to bravery when someone smaller is in need in this humorous, tenderly sympathetic story.

Lots of things at the beach scare Sukie. Lots. Because she is just a small dog, and the stairs are big and sandy, and the waves are big and whooshy, and the balls are big and beachy. And besides, there might be lobsters. With endearing illustrations and a perfectly paced text that captures a timid pup's looping thoughts, here is a funny and honest read-aloud about how overwhelming the world can be when you're worried -- and how empowering it is to overcome your fears when it matters the most.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This charming story shows how fear can hold us back, and how love can save the day. Eleanor, a ponytailed girl who exudes confidence, takes her dog, Sukie, and Sukie's toy monkey, Chunka Munka, to the beach. Sukie is a fraidy-dog. As she sits forlornly at the top of the stairs leading to the beach, readers get a glimpse of the small dog's worrying thoughts. To name a few, she fears she might tumble down the stairs, get a shell stuck in her nose, be knocked down by a beach ball, or worst of all meet lobsters. Eleanor deposits the timid pup on the sand and tries to coax her into the water, but to no avail. When a wave carries away Chunka Munka, Sukie springs into action (and into potentially lobster-infested waters), swimming out to save the beloved toy, her anxiety forgotten. The illustrations, done in watercolor, acrylic, and pen-and-ink, beautifully capture the feel of the seaside. Crimi's latest is a warmhearted lesson in how to ovecome paralyzing fears by putting others first.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2017 Booklist"
