Here is another fun book review by READERS’ FAVORITE on my book one of the TWIN TAILS Series…TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach!
Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers’ Favorite:
“One night, while taking a stroll along the beach, Mateo and Marnie discover something extraordinary–a conch shell in which two infant girls are hidden. But for their skin colors which differ, the infants are identical in appearance. Marnie and Mateo take them home and begin the search for their parents. But when none are found, the girls, whom they name Marina and Perla, join their family. So begins Twin Tails of Mason Beach by CILLYart. The fun continues when Mateo and Marnie discover that when Marina and Perla are in salt water, their skin turns scaly, and their legs become tails. All through their growing years, the twins’ parents keep this a secret from them, but eventually, they share it with the girls who are delighted to discover their true nature. They secretly swim in the ocean, and eventually become heroes when a surfer is left stranded during a storm.
It is often the case that younger readers like stories that feature older protagonists. The difficulty can arise when the tales also include issues that are intended only for older readers. But CILLYart has managed, in Twin Tails of Mason Beach, Volume One, to bridge that gap. While most of the story is told after the twins become high school students, this is most certainly a tale for young children and it is one they are sure to enjoy. Complete with enchantment, dangers, a bit of old mermaid folk lore, and two teenage girls who become heroes, young readers will stay engaged and keep turning pages. Better yet, they’ll be able to follow the series!”
Don’t forget to pick up a copy of TWIN TAILS of Mason Beach to read before you read the next book in this magically fun series, TWIN TAILS Book 2 (Title to be officially released by the author on MONDAY, October 17th, 2016), at your favorite bookstore or request it at your local library today!
