A Must-Have Summer Read for Kids
Monday, June 22, 2009
Whether you've been to Nantucket or not, you'll be taken by the warm story of Jenny the mermaid who collects the shiny pennies thrown off the ferries by young and old as they round the Brant Point Lighthouse on their way home.
Island lore says that pennies thrown overboard at this very spot will ensure a return to this magical place.
The book is penned by our friend Peter Saverine from the Darien Sport Shop in Darien CT, who has thrown his fair share of pennies from the ferry. The book is sure to become a household favorite with its whimsical characters and well-crafted story.
Jenny's Pennies is available online at jennyspennies.us or bookstores and shops as listed on the site.
Feel good knowing that $1 of every book purchased online goes directily to the Make A Wish Foundation.
