Celebrated author and illustrator of “If I Built a House,” “The Circus Ship,” and the Mr. Magee series, Chris Van Dusen presents a charming story of acceptance, friendship and sticking up for those who are different. Hattie McFadden is a born explorer. Every morning she paddles out in her canoe to discover something new on the lake. When her singing draws up from the depths a huge mysterious beast, everyone in town is terrified—except Hattie, who looks into the creature’s curious eyes and knows that this is no monster. But how can she make the frightened townspeople see that her new friend isn’t scary at all?
