Please enjoy these excerpts from the book...
It was a bright and sunny day on the island where Annabel and Nora lived. In fact, the girls thought it was a perfect day for a swim. Nora called upstairs to her older sister, "Hey, Annabel. Are you ready to head to the beach yet? I can’t wait to swim!" Annabel called back down, "Yes, I’m putting on my shoes so we can walk to the beach." So Nora and Annabel put on their shoes and sunscreen, and walked down to the beach to swim....
...So the four friends walked to the beach together. Once they got there, they all wanted to get in the water. As soon as they got in the water, Nora looked up and exclaimed, “Oh no! There’s a t-t-t-terrible shark!” Immediately, the four friends jumped out of the water and ran as fast as they could to their house!
...The party was so much fun! All of their friends came and were amazed to meet such a friendly, talkative shark! As they were leaving, Annabel handed everyone cookies and goodie bags. “We all thought that the shark was terrible,” they told Annabel, “but now we’re so happy to know that he really is the Friendly Shark. Now we can all be best friends!”
