Together they become fascinated by an older gentleman who is always surrounded by birds and seems to appear and disappear quite suddenly. Jen and Mike learn that magic can happen when you least expect it. And though it is very exciting, it also can be dangerous.

‘POOR DOREEN: A FISHY TALE”
BY SALLY LLOYD-JONES
Doreen is on a mission: to visit her second cousin twice removed who’s just welcomed 157 babies.
But when she spies what she thinks is a yummy dragonfly — and it is actually bait — poor Doreen is lifted out of the water on a fishing pole.
Luckily, Doreen is, shall we say, a wee bit clueless about the dire situation. Kids will love being in on the joke as our oblivious heroine arrives, in a roundabout way, at her final destination.
Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of the “New York Times” best-selling “How to Be a Baby…by Me, the Big Sister,” and acclaimed illustrator Alexandra Boiger bring the world of a fish to vibrant, funny life. Good-natured Doreen will charm and delight children and their parents as she meanders cheerfully through countless mishaps, ensuring that this playfully told story will be one asked for at story time again and again.
