The Sea Serpent and Me

By: Dashka Slater

Illustrator: Catia Chien

On Tuesday, as I was about to climb into the bath, a sea serpent dropped out of the faucet and into the tub. He was a very beautiful sea serpent, so small I could hold him in my hands." As rainy day after rainy day passes, a girl and her serpent friend sing songs, take baths, and talk about the sea. But little girls live on land, and a growing serpent needs wave upon wave of water. Full-color art.
