The Luck of the Loch Ness Monster


One of my goals this summer (besides spring cleaning, visiting libraries across the state of Texas and crocheting a baby blanket for a dear friend) is to read all the books on the Texas Bluebonnet Award list for the coming school year.

This is the funny of tale of a small worm who grew to be the Loch Ness monster. It all started when Katerina-Elizabeth is sailing aboard a ship and cannot stand the oatmeal she is given. So what else could she do, but throw it over board? It turned out that a tiny worm found the oatmeal she tossed over the side of the ship and gobbled it all up. It was so yummy to the worm that it started to following the ship throughout its journey. All the while the tiny worm grew and grew and GREW. What happens when Katerina's ship docks? Will the worm be all alone? Be sure to read The Luck of the Loch Ness Monster to find out.
