Sea Surprise

Leo Landry

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Eel was ill. He did not wake up feeling very electric.
"Oh, drat!" he said grumpily. "I've lost my zap!"

An adorably funny undersea adventure for beginning readers

Poor Eel. Kate and Dave want to help their friend get his zap back. All they need is a plan-one that doesn't involve biting things, even though Dave's shark teeth are itching to chomp something.

With lots of help from the other sea creatures, the friends come up with the perfect way to jolt Eel's zap back into him. A surprise party is sure to do the trick! But the party starts off with a shock that no one expected.
