There are catfish and flatfish and jellyfish, too,

There are all kinds of fish, but there’s only one you.

And all of the wondrous fish in the sea,

Can’t be as special as you are to me.

Driftwood Dragons is a collection of 34 lyrical seaside poems for children. Inspired by the Maritime coastline and accompanied by whimsical illustrations, these poems are celebrations of the coastal environment. From an ode to a beach flea to a short conversation with a snail, Driftwood Dragons perfectly captures the beauty, diversity, and joy to be found at Maritime beaches.
