Suzanne will be signing Tommy Tuna along with any and all of the other books in the series, from the original Crabby & Nabby to last year’s Merri-lee Monarch.

Generations of children have grown up reading Suzanne’s books and learning about a multitude of seashore creatures and ocean dwellers through them.
