Connor’s Conundrum Excerpt:

Waves rolled above the colorful reef soothing the city of sea creatures. Connor the little cleaner fish watched as pink coral gracefully swayed in the currents. The sea sparkled as sunlight danced through the waves spilling onto the ocean floor. He enjoyed the peaceful moment knowing that soon there would be a line of fish waiting for a good cleaning. The little cleaner fish took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) wondering who he would see today. Connor twirled around his home to warm up for his busy day. Then the little cleaner fish zipped out the door.

Connor zigged and zagged just outside the coral showing off his bright pink and blue stripes. The shop was open for the day. The little cleaner fish stopped dancing to see what customers were arriving. A large shadow slowly covered Connor and the pink coral. As the large sea creature swam towards Connor, the cleaner fish circled and danced. A spot of white shimmered on the grey fish’s triangular fin. Connor now knew who his first customer was, Sean the shark!
