Join a little boy and his family on a seemingly average summer day on island off the coast of Maine. Lobster boats, seagulls, and daily chores stir up an unexpected mystery. Alvah hates to upset his mother, and she has been noticing some missing things. Read along as he unravels a surprising resolution.


Tess Haskell grew up in Bartlett’s Harbor on North Haven, where she graduated the K–12 school and lobstered for her father—a true daughter of the islands, with family also coming from Vinalhaven and Matinicus. She now has five children. She loves being a mother and hopes to write more children’s books in the future.
