Just looking at this adorable cover tells me it's a fun read.
Even though I'm not a young reader, I loved this story. It's a great addition to the Piper Morgan series.
Here are my thoughts.
PIPER MORGAN MAKES A SPLASH
By Stephanie Faris
Illustrated by Lucy Fleming
A hot summer day. A swimming pool with cool water. What more could a girl want? The delightful Piper Morgan is back with a new adventure.
In PIPER MORGAN MAKES A SPLASH, the latest story in the Piper Morgan series for young readers, Piper’s mom has a new job at the pool place, which leads to all sorts of fun for Piper, or so she hopes. Will Piper get her own pool? Will she have a chance to do a commercial, like the man on TV? She seems to find trouble whatever she does. Piper is smart, and she tries to be good. She also knows when she messes up.
Throughout the book, black and white illustrations by Lucy Fleming add to the fun of the story. Also, each chapter ends with an interesting “Splash Fact.”
Stephanie Faris has created a cast of characters that could be a real family. Young readers might relate to Piper when her plans don’t always turn out the way she wants them to. I recommend this novel and the other books in the series for young readers and older ones, who enjoy a fun read, too. These books would make a great addition to elementary school classrooms and libraries, as well as your own library.
