Pool Party Excerpt:

It was a hot, sunny day on Ahway Island. The sun was shining brightly down on the green trees as birds flew high in the sky. It was the perfect day to get together with good friends and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Callie Kim was happily helping her dad blow up her brand-new inflatable pool! The pool was pink with pretty blue and yellow designs on it, featuring seagulls, fish, and green turtles.

“Dad,” said Callie, “I think this pool is named Percy.”

Jun, Callie’s dad, smiled and said, “Okay, Callie. Percy it is!”

Callie poked Percy’s puffy outside and giggled as it bounced back.

Then Callie watched her dad fill the pool with water from the garden hose. Callie’s friends Anora and Liam were going to come over so they could have a backyard pool party together. Callie was very excited to have her first pool party with her friends on Ahway Island.
