Slim Pickens is a naughty young seagull who arrives at the beach every day and is an expert at helping himself to food out of beach bags. The families attempt to teach Slim some beach manners but he outwits them every time. One day Slim meets a well-mannered gull Daisy and everything changes. A delightful tale for children with illustrations by the author, Tony Viehmann, a resident of Cape Porpoise, Maine. Soft-cover, 44 pages.
