Lizzie Limpet

Lizzie Limpet

Lizzie Limpet was the star of Edith Howes’s 1928 cautionary tale for New Zealand children. Not being a ‘stick-at-home’ limpet, clinging to a rock like other members of her family, she sets out to explore the grand world of the beach. After a near-miss encounter with a sea anemone, and being tossed by waves in a storm, she comes to appreciate the benefits of staying clamped in one place.
