Have you ever had a dream? Do you have a vivid imagination? Then you will love Sammi Jo, who totally believes that if you can dream it, you can make it happen!
Sammi Jo is anticipating a very long and boring summer with no one to play with. Strange splashes and unexplained items appearing from the sea prompt her to begin her explorations to find the meaning behind the “clues”.
Will she meet a new friend? Join Sammi Jo on her quest and see if you can figure out the mystery before she does!
Dede Stockton is the red-headed, only child who was always seeking a new friend. The stories about Sammi Jo and her seaside adventures stem from Dede’s imagined adventures when she was a child and living near beaches all over the world as a military brat!
Most places did not have television, or at least not American television, and because she is an only child and there were no electronic devices in those days, she read... Anything she could get her hands on!
Many of the places she lived were on or near the oceans, so, just like Sammi Jo, she believed that there were magical adventures to be had under the water!
Dede began telling stories of Sammi Jo and her sea serpent friend to her children as bed time stories. As the stories, and her children, grew, she decided she should write them so other children could enjoy the adventures as well.
After much reworking - the NEW and improved Sammi Jo and the Best Day Ever is on it's way. Waiting for my first proof to arrive!
Sammi Jo and The Best Day Ever!
Sammi Jo as her friends call her, is eight years old and attends a very elite boarding school in New York City. A boarding school is a place where children live and go to school. She lives at a boarding school because her parents are very famous writers and they travel a lot doing research for their books. So, during the school year, she lives at the boarding school and during the summer, she lives with her parents at their cottage on the New Hampshire shores. Her parents spend their summers writing at the cottage so they can spend time with their only daughter, Sammi Jo.
