Lily Discovers Springtime in Charleston
Sometimes, Lily comes ashore for the day to sign books and meet some of her new readers. Of course, the sea witch must cast a magic spell, changing her fin into feet; and Lily must promise to be back at the beach by sundown, when her feet will turn back into a fin again. In the between time, there is nothing that Lily would rather do than explore this new world of fields and forests, colorful neighborhoods and beautifully landscaped green lawns. This is Lily’s first springtime in Charleston. She knows all about rainbow-colored coral gardens beneath the sea, but she had never seen sweet spring flowers, sprouting from rich brown musky soil nor enjoyed the scents of honeysuckle and jasmine while traversing the streets of Charleston. These are just a couple of spring photos that she keeps in her treasure chest.
