Elanora and the Salt Marsh Mystery

Book Description:

After a series of terrifying events, Elanora is transported to a strange neighborhood where the only way to get about is by water and the only food to eat is the grasses of the marsh. When she discovers that the water level in her new home is falling, she suspects humans are the cause and puts together a plan to save the creatures who live there.
Will Elanora convince the colony and swimmers that they must leave the marsh and embark on a dangerous journey to their new home?

My Thoughts:

When I saw this book's cover I thought 'oh a cute little book to read with my kids', but it really is more.  I enjoyed the story and the characters.  The author did a good job of making a 'simple' kids book so much more and made me like Elanora.  Her adventure was a great story.

There are many layers to the story and some good lessons to learn.  I did read it to my kid and we all enjoyed it.  They took different things away from it than I did and they liked different parts.  So I say it is a kids book to adult because we are all kids at heart!
