Sea Serpents Don't Juggle Water Balloons

Sea Serpents Don't Juggle Water Balloons

by Marcia Thornton Jones, Debbie Dadey Illustrated by John Steven Gurney

Though they are used to some pretty strange grown-ups in Bailey City, Eddie and his friends are not sure what to think of Eddie's new math tutor. The friends are determined to find out if the tutor — who is a juggler at the Bailey City Summer Festival — is, in fact, a sea serpent planning to harm the residents of Bailey City.
