Sal and Sally are two small fish just hanging out in the waters of the big
blue sea. They soon grow bored, though, so, to amuse herself, Sally starts to blow
bubbles. Fascinated by the practice, Sal begs Sally to teach him how to do the
same, and the two of them then proceed to have a ball, blowing bubbles and
swimming around in the sea.
Nellie The Octopus soon arrives, and, upon seeing the fun that Sal and
Sally are having, she asks them to teach her how to blow bubbles, too. They
happily oblige, and Nellie then proceeds to blow a gigantic bubble – so big, in
fact, that it accidentally traps Sal and Sally inside. While they’re trying to figure out
how to get out of the bubble, Nasty Nick, the Texas Long Nose Cowboy Shark,
sidles up to the trio. Initially, he masks his malicious intentions, but once Sal and
Sally catch on to the true purpose of his visit, they implore Nellie to join them in
the bubble in order to save herself from getting eaten by him. She quickly does,
and, despite his best efforts, Nasty Nick is unable to burst the bubble and get to
his prey, so he slithers off.
Safe once again, Sal, Sally, and Nellie then figure out a way to get out of
the bubble – but, once they’re free, Nasty Nick makes a quick return to finish what
he started…can the three friends find a way to avoid becoming a tasty snack for a
sneaky, hungry shark?
Readers of all ages are sure to enjoy Sal And Sally. In it, author Jay Miller
does a commendable job of highlighting the advantages of getting along and
working together, outlining just how beneficial the principles of teamwork,
sharing, and selflessness are when put into real practice. The collective strength
that can be manifested through genuine bonding is a lesson that it’s never too late
Miller also places special emphasis on the importance of changing one’s
ways in order to gain the trust of others. The power of redemption is a universal
theme that never gets old, and, as he depicts in the decisions that Nasty Nick
ultimately makes, Miller does an effective job of showing the reader just how
advantageous it can be to seek to make amends for past wrongs.
Kudos to Jay Miller for creating an engaging tale, both enlightening and
entertaining and sure to become a permanent addition to personal libraries
everywhere. Highly recommended.
