M. T. Anderson is acclaimed for his thought-provoking children’s books. This captivating book is a rhyming dramatization based on 19th-century accounts of a mysterious sea creature swimming the coastal waters of Massachusetts.
As startling news sweeps the summer streets, a curious lad races toward the harbor in disbelief. And yet it’s true! There, frolicking in the water is an enormous sea serpent. The wide-eyed boy can plainly see it. And so can the crowd gathering on Cape Ann’s sandy shores. For weeks, the youth watches the majestic monster—until, suddenly, it disappears.
