I grew up in Northfield, New Jersey, just a few miles outside Ocean City. As Bowfish Kids' Marketing Director, I was up to the task when the owner, Caitlin, approached me to create a children's book set in Ocean City. With a great passion for art, having the ability to create a story through my words and paintings has been so much fun! The entire team at Bowfish worked together, from initial brainstorming and selecting the right syllable pattern to the final edits. I'd like to give my family and friends a special shout-out for supporting me during this process (especially after sending every finished painting for review). I'm so thankful to Bowfish and Caitlin for the opportunity to create this book and bring Pip to life. Painting some of my favorite places in Ocean City has been a joy, and I hope your little ones love it as much as we do!

Best book ever if you love Ocean City NJ

I saw this book from an OCNJ FB group and I had to have it. We love OC and my grandson loved the book!! he's 2.5. Not sure he quite gets the stores involved but his parents do and they loved it as well!! He loves the seagulls, and the sandpipers on the beach! He immediately sat for me to read it! Such a great children's book!!!



Originally I bought one for my grand boys, got it, read it, ordered a second one. They need their own! I plan on buying my nephew one next. Great gift for children who love the shore ❤️ Love it



Must Have

Such a cute story with beautiful and detailed illustrations! Definitely a must-have for any OC-loving families.



Hello, we love this book!

My nieces and nephew are obsessed with Pip! They can't get enough of this book. The artwork is amazing. With this amount of detail you can tell the artist put a lot of love into each page. Really beautifully done. Highly recommend!
