Quacker just kept sitting there staring at them and trying to get them to quack back at him. He sat there for almost 30 minutes and watched them swaying in the wind ever so delicately. They did not make a noise they just swayed back and forth. Quacker didn’t understand why they didn’t want to play with him. He tried quacking at them again and his mom came over to see what he kept quacking about. His mom told him that they were not baby ducks like him. She told him that they are a beautiful flower that look like cute flying ducks, but they are not real ducks. Quacker was impressed with what he had learned. Quacker said thanks mom and went on his way exploring for more amazing things to see. THE END!

Her rhinophores set on top of her head and looked like cute little bunny ears. Her body was covered in caryophyllidia that helped her sense her way around too. She would feel her way around the ocean floor until she found food to eat. Her favorite food was sea sponges. She loved to eat them. When she ate enough sea sponges, she would take a rest until she was hungry again. Then her search for sea sponges would continue. The end.

I'm Mimi, the author of the JOEY SAVES THE DAY! book series. I love reading and writing. I homeschool my two youngest children. My 15-year-old daughter illustrated the books and will illustrate all the rest of them in the series. She started illustrating the series when she was 14 years old. She loves to draw. She is learning as she goes. Her dream is to one day be a famous illustrator and a fantasy book writer. Help me make my daughter’s dreams a reality! Children and adults everywhere will love these books. The story and illustrations within the pages of the books will put a big smile on your face and your child will be delighted as you read them the books. The illustrations are adorable and the stories are super cute. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to own this collection of adorable books! All five of the books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart, and Books A Million.
