About A Perfect Day:

A seagull and a crab find friendship and compromise in this sweet and humorous story about the meaning of perfection.

The sky is blue, the sun is warm, the breeze is cool--it's a perfect day for Seagull, perched on a rock in the sea. That is, until crabby Crab comes along and points out all of the day's flaws! There's a cloud in the sky, a smelly boat in the distance, and the rock that they're sitting on is covered in barnacles.

In this sweet and funny story about finding happiness amidst flaws, Seagull and Crab learn that nothing is more perfect than spending time with friends.

Sarah S. Brannen is the award-winning illustrator of more than twenty books for children. She is the author and illustrator of Bear Needs Help (Philomel Books), Madame Martine and Madame Martine Breaks the Rules (Albert Whitman), and Uncle Bobby's Wedding (G. P. Putnam’s Sons). Uncle Bobby’s Wedding received extensive publicity upon publication; it was the eighth most-challenged book in the US in 2008.
Sarah also illustrated Seashells: More Than a Home and Feathers: Not Just For Flying, the Crystal Kite Award winner and an ALA notable book written by Melissa Stewart; At Home in Her Tomb, A Junior Library Guild selection; and Digging for Troy: From Homer to Hisarlik as well as many other books. She illustrated the 40th Anniversary edition of All Kinds of Families by Norma Simon.
