Sammi Jo hears “the splash” and knows there’s something lurking behind the water but her parents disregard her thoughts. When she finally sees Screech, the one responsible for the splash, Sammi Jo’s life changes and becomes magical and fascinating!
This book is perfect for kids who love to read about mythical creatures and animals. Doubting parents aside, the story is centered on a bright young girl named Sammi Jo who never let negative vibes ruin her day. I read this to my youngest son and he had this grin reaching his ears because he wanted to meet mermaids and see seahorses. At least in this book, he was able to take a look at their beauty. The illustrations of the wonderful seafolks were a sight to behold. DeDe Stockton was able to tickle my child’s imagination so this is a going to be a good addition to my boys’ growing bookshelf!

Eight year old Sammi Jo's second week at her family's cottage by the shore is even more full of fun than the week before. Screech has promised to show her something wonderous and Sammi Jo's twelve year old cousin, Jake, comes for a visit. Sammi Jo's parents take her to town to see a rodeo. Sammi Jo learns of local folklore and legends while she is there. Finally Sammi Jo has someone will believe her about Screech and his family and not just write it all off as her imagination.
DeDe Stockton delivers a story that is both entertaining and educational. She teaches tolerance and acceptance of the difference of others. It is a story of wonders and adventures for young readers. I shared this story with my nieces and nephews varying in ages 6 to 10 and they all gave it two thumbs up. I give it a five out of five stars for the fun we had sharing it with the young readers in my family.

This book is perfect for kids who love to read about mythical creatures and animals. The only negative was there were several pages that described the various sea horses and mer-people. I can see some kids putting the book down at that point and not continuing and they would miss the rest of the fun adventure story. A good book for early chapter book readers.
I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
