Join Lily in her second adventure, as she and her new friends from Shem Creek embark on a magical journey to find her home in the Raspberry Kingdom. Currents and tides become amusement park rides that carry them into fun and suspenseful encounters. A monkey in the middle of the sea--could it be? A sunken treasure--Arrr! A pirate's pleasure! But the tide turns. Her best friend disappears, and Lily comes face-to-face with a Giant Octopus bully. Can a bully become a friend? Readers learn that small acts of kindness can change even an underwater world and inspire more kindness and smiles. During the journey to Raspberry Kingdom, children experience the magic of friendship, gentle approaches to bullies they meet, and the power of working together as a team.
About The Author
Jan has had a lasting passion for literature and particularly fantasy.

She has always lived near the sea with her family and her favorite horses, formerly in Newport County, RI and currently in Charleston, SC.

Reviewed By Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite - 5 stars....This was a well-written story with great lessons throughout, and I enjoyed reading this with my daughter. It was a great story, but it also allowed for good discussions as far as how Lily was a good friend and the choices she made. The illustrations for this book are done by Dave Sullins and they are absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations are beautiful, full of detail, and go perfectly with the story. This is a must-read for girls who love mermaids!
