By Sandy Compton
Elisba might be Queen of the Western Sea, but even though she understands kelp and whales and plankton and shrimp and fish of all sorts; and why the ocean stays near the shore and why there are jellyfish but no peanutbutterfish; she doesn’t know where water comes from. Her friend Albert the Magician knows, but he won’t tell. But, he will help her learn for herself, because he know that we learn best what we find out ourselves. So, Albert and Wanderer, the Great Golden Ghost Dog of the West, take Elisba to the desert and turn her into water and send her on her way home, where she will find her answer . . . if Gunther the Troll will let her go.

This is a great book to read to your kids or grandkids. It took a couple of dozen years to get published. Good things take time, as does our fulfillment process. If you are in a hurry to get it, though, you can buy it from Amazon, if you wish.
