Learning to read surf-speak has never been so easy, or so much fun! It's, like, totally radical! (If you need a little extra help, check out the non-bogus glossary at the back of the book.) For beach boys and surfer girls of all ages.

Praise For…

Give Dude as a present to the expectant surfer parents you know, or, for that matter, to anyone with small kids who like adventure. Dude is a light, colorful lark of a tale . . . just like a day at the beach.
— Los Angeles Times Book Review

Lisa Pliscou has turned the familiar style into something hilarious by applying it to surf culture.
— Wall Street Journal

Pliscou mimes the sincere voice and meticulous punctuation of an easy reader (”See Dude surf. Whoa! Look at Dude surf. Surf, Dude, surf”). Her humor arises from unexpected vocabulary (”Stokaboka!”), paired with earnest illustrations of Dude hanging 10, wiping out, and visiting a taco stand for a “bodacious burrito.”
— Publishers Weekly

Truly non-bogus retro artwork in the style of 1950s Dick and Jane illustrations evokes a nostalgic sensibility with contemporary updates - including a notably multicultural cast of characters in several beach scenes.
