Lobster Paradise by Edward Brends tells the story of a teenage Costa Rican boy from San Jose that after the death of his father lives with his aunt. The story starts with him traveling to his sister in Puerto Limón to spend the Easter vacations with her and her husband. The events, that develop over a timeframe of 13 months from April 1947 to April 1948, are heavily influenced by the sudden appearance of lobsters off the shores of Puerto Limón and the shadows of the Costa Rican Civil War nearing the town.
The drawings, with simple and clean lines, fit really well with the story of a teenager.
