This mythical tale will enrich your child's imagination and immerse them in a magical coastal seascape, where they will meet loggerhead turtles, dolphins, fish, oysters, crabs, and even a scary shark who later becomes a friend. Readers will visit a musical jamboree and learn valuable life lessons about the danger of judging others by appearance and language and the importance of kindness. The Shem Creek sea friends spurn Lily because of her many differences, but when their jamboree is in imminent danger, Lily performs a magical feat that saves the day. Sea friends and readers can learn about the importance of embracing our differences and discovering the greatness within.
About The Author
Jan has had a lasting passion for literature and particularly fantasy. She has taught writing and literature at both the secondary and college level and has also worked as a technical writer for the Naval Department of Defense. She has always lived near the sea with her family and her favorite horses, formerly in Newport County, RI and currently in Charleston, SC. While kayaking with the dolphins along Shem Creek, she became inspired by the diversity of life both on and off shore and has woven these themes together to share with other young readers.
