The author has sent me this series to read for review (thank you). It has been published so grab it now.
We stayed one anniversary. It's very relaxing and we got to feed baby ducks. This family takes a week and soon is involved with the animals, too.
A little lost girl, Myrtle, has odd names for all the animals. They meet a King Croaker and get to go to a circus. So much is magical and all of it is wondrous. They are searching for their parents along the way.
They decide to have a party to thank the houseboat for its help. That triggers even a bigger surprise. Faeries, talking bees, and a magic woodland home. Wow, you've got it all!
