Aloha to all surfers, parents, grandparents, friends, relatives of surfers, and lovers of the ocean! The Epic Adventures of Big Binks is a surf adventure for big and little groms that seeks to teach the language of surf (and includes a Surf Lingo for Little Groms glossary), while exposing children to the idea of embracing new experiences and cultural differences. Sam the Clam takes Big Binks on an epic journey, and teaches him how to speak Seagull, Hawaiian Whale, and Shark Japaneesy. Big Binks learns that for the other sea creatures to be able to understand him, all he needs to do is try. The language of this surf-tale will not only delight children, but is also designed to entertain the adults who will happily read this book to their groms at night, bringing storytime back and filling their children's minds with beautiful and creative ideas before falling to sleep. Please visit www.epicliteraryadventures.com for more epic insights. Written by two surfer-teachers, Kate Montero and Christian Kahler, and illustrated by their fellow-surfer and local lifeguard, Mike Castillo, The Epic Adventures of Big Binks is a truly authentic surf-tale. With an M.A. in Communication, Kate is an instructor in the Communication Arts department at Florida International University, and delights in exposing her students to ideas in courses including intercultural communication. With an M.A. in Remediation, and an M.S. in Special Education, Christian, a West-Australia native, teaches education courses at Palm Beach State College, and is an elementary school specialist with additional certifications in reading, special education, ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages), and elementary education (1-6).

"This book was so good for little dudes!!!! I especially loved the illustrations!!!! I read it to my grandson about 4 times a week. Adorable!!!!! Looking forward to more of this kind. Highly recommend!" - Amazon Customer "I absolutely loved learning about the language of surfing through the imaginative rhyming dialogue between Big Binks and his friends. I can still envision Big Binks popping up on his surfboard as he crouches low, pulls in deep and rides a tubular tube showing what a serious and happy dude he is riding the waves. What a wonderful book to not only learn the language of surfing but to also teach how all living creatures in our world are interconnected. I bought copies for my young friends and they have loved The Epic Adventures of Big Binks too. Thank you Kate Montero and Christian Kahler for writing a story that children will enjoy reading over and over." -Dianne Potskowski
