Racing Coconuts Boats Around Red Rock
Hairy Fish Press, 2013
Hardcover, 78 pages
Wicky Sticket (Ceramics 1995) is the pen name of the author, illustrator, and publisher of Racing Coconuts Boats Around Red Rock. The author says:
“These events happened while racing my sailboat.
Every character and poem was created in clay.
The sand came from Baker Beach in Sausalito, California.
Buoy X is an actual buoy off San Francisco city front.
Sailor's also race around Red Rock, found in our bay.
The water was carefully tested for color, transparency, opacity, and harmony.
It’s a rhyming fiesta, with exotic foods included.
Along with a racing storyline, intrusions of kitchenware and possible seafood incidents, among many other issues arise.
A bit of a giggle fest can ensue, for the young and elderly alike.
