FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Reveries Co. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts.

Such a charmer! The tension was high, drama wonderful, atmosphere rich, and leading character a lovable little guy. I loved this one from the first sentence, and every paragraph built beautifully upon the previous ones. This short story will charm folks of all ages, and it’s a great story to sit and read with kids. I highly recommend this one.

3 stars & 3/10 hearts. This was a cute little story and kept me interested, but the ending was rather... flat? I just couldn't find a resolution or a point. Perhaps that just mirrors life, haha. I've read and enjoyed others of this author's works, this one just wasn't my style. ;)

I enjoyed this story, but didn’t understand why Eddy was in trouble at the end until I found out he’d been told not to do something. I think if he’d already been warned, he wouldn’t have enjoyed his time as much.

There was a euphemism at the end that detracted from my enjoyment.

Oh, I probably could have guessed what would happen in this short 'n' sweet family summer tale. But I didn't go in guessing. Just took the story as it came and let it make me feel good.

This story definitely did a good job of bringing me into Eddy's feelings and struggles, but the ending felt a little flat for some reason. Maybe it would have helped if we'd known beforehand that he'd been warned about the tidepools? And if the point was for him to learn a lesson on obedience, the did-he-or-didn't-he moment at the end didn't really help. That said, I did like the story and style overall; I just had a bit of a hard time tying it all together.

Content--disobedience (corrected); perilous situations
