Mermaid Tales: Twist and Shout
Written by Debbie Dadey
Ages: 8 - 12
Grade level: 3 – 7
I matched this week’s blog about friendship to a great book. It was written by a friend, about friendship. In Twist and Shout, Echo’s practicing for the dance team’s competition when tradgedy strikes. She falls from her seahorse and is hurt so badly she can’t move her tail or manoever without crutches. The worst part, because of her accident, her team could lose. Thanks to a little help from her friends, Echo competes using crutches and helps her team win. Did you know that Mermaid Tales #17, Ready, Set, Goal, just came out? If you haven’t read Mermaid Tales, check them out!
Here’s a picture of Debbie and I. I met her last year, but I’ve known her forever, through the 30-some books in my classroom collection. Now when I sub, I meet more of Debbie’s friends. Like me, they know her through books like the Bailey Kids series and Mermaid Tales
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
