Seashell Sneak Preview!

Right now, my newest Floyd book is going through the final publishing stages and is due out in May. Hooray!

Would you like a sneak preview of the story? Of course you do!! Here is the official synopsis and some images from the story. Hopefully I'm not giving too much away -- do you think you can guess what happens?... Enjoy!

In Floyd and the Sparkling Seashell Floyd, Tiny, and Larue spend a day at the beach where a certain Sparkling Seashell catches Floyd's eye. He wants that beautiful shell, but he'll have to go into the ocean to get it. That’s not going to be easy, because Floyd is afraid of the water. 

With Tiny and Larue's help, Floyd tries some clever ways to get that shell, but can these plans possibly work? Will the Sparkling Seashell ever be his? Can Floyd conquer his fear of the ocean and dive in?...
