5.0 out of 5 stars This book was very very good!
Monsters Don't Scuba Dive is a book by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones. I thought Monsters Don't Scuba Dive is a good book! I thought it was good because it is very exciting and adventurous. It was exiting because the kids are trying to find out if the new swimming teacher at Camp Lone Wolf is the sea monster that was seen in Loch Ness in Scotland. After all,...

3.0 out of 5 stars fun, but not the best of the series
In book #14 of the Bailey School Kids series, the gang goes back again to Camp Lone Wolf (you know, the one where the counselor may be a werewolf!). There they meet the bagpipe playing, wetsuit wearing, Scottish brogue speaking Nessie, the camp swimming teacher. There's something odd about her, and very odd about the shapes that seem to be surfacing in the lake late at...

Monsters Don't Scuba Dive is a book by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones. I thought Monsters Don't Scuba Dive is a good book! I thought it was good because it is very exciting and adventurous. It was exiting because the kids are trying to find out if the new swimming teacher at Camp Lone Wolf is the sea monster that was seen in Loch Ness in Scotland. After all, she is Scottish and her name is Nessie. This book is in the Bailey School Kids Series . There are thirty books in the series. The four main characters are Eddie, Liza, Melody, and Howie. I recommend the books to all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is there a Monster in Lake Erin?, March 25, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Monsters Don't Scuba Dive (The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids, #14) (Paperback)
I thought this book was good for first through third grade.I thought it was a really good book because the Bailey School kids think there is a monster in Lake Erin.I would recommend this book to first threw third grader because it is a short book with very big print. I thought when Eddie saw a tiny fish and thought it was a shark it was very funny.My favorite character was Eddie.Eddie is a redheaded boy who cracks me up.One reason I liked Eddie is that he likes to argue with the teacher.Eddie also hates school and reading.

This review is from: Monsters Don't Scuba Dive (The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids, #14) (Paperback)
I gave this book five stars because it was a great mystery. It
had a thrill about finding out if their scuba teacher is a lake monster.They eventually find out that she is a monster
but it brings in an adventure and mystery to find out.The book
brings in some beliefs and realistic things about monsters.

I am ordering these books for my youngest granddaughter. She loves them. When I got the books they were packed really well. And they got here really quickly. She got interest in them at school. But the school only had a few of them. They don't even have a complete set.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun, but not the best of the series, March 21, 2001
This review is from: Monsters Don't Scuba Dive (The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids, #14) (Paperback)
In book #14 of the Bailey School Kids series, the gang goes back again to Camp Lone Wolf (you know, the one where the counselor may be a werewolf!). There they meet the bagpipe playing, wetsuit wearing, Scottish brogue speaking Nessie, the camp swimming teacher. There's something odd about her, and very odd about the shapes that seem to be surfacing in the lake late at night. Is it possible there's a monster in there?
"Monsters Don't..." is a cute, quickly moving book in this series, but it not one of the best books. It's confusing at a lot of points because the reader isn't sure if there's a separate monster from Loch Ness in the lake, or if the camp swim teacher is a monster herself. While this may seem to add to the mystery of the series and infuse it with that characteristic weird-creepiness seen in other books in the series, here in "Monsters Don't..." it just winds up being confusing. The ending is a bit weak, leaving readers wondering why the book ended when they finish the last page and the character of Nessie isn't very strong or well sketched out. If you're a diehard fan of the series, then by all means read it! However, if you're just picking up a few here and there, you may want to think about skipping this one.
