诺大的湖泊居然凭空消失了!眨眼间又会再次出现!围绕着“快闪湖泊”,小姑娘米拉和爷爷展开了一系列探究,脑洞大开的爷爷做出了各种新奇有趣的假设,追根到底的米花却认为这些并不是真相。最终,他们是如何破解湖泊消失之谜的呢?

Based on a real lake close to the author’s hometown in Ireland, this book beautifully blends imagination with the magic of the natural world.

Something mysterious is happening at Lake Loughareema. There are days the lake is beautiful, shimmering, and full. And then there are other days when it’s . . . empty!

Meara asks her granddad WHY the water disappears, but every time he blames far-fetched culprits: Narwals! Mermaids! Giants! Unsatisfied, Meara sets out to uncover the truth for herself. Little does she know the answer is much larger than she realizes, and it’ll take stepping back and opening her eyes to the impossible to discover the lake’s magic.

小男孩想要画出一幅顶顶可怕的怪兽图画——长长的绿舌头,尖尖的犄角,吓人的獠牙……你猜这样的小怪兽能吓唬到男孩的家人和朋友吗?屡次尝试失败的小男孩最后又创作了什么杰作呢?小艺术家们不如一起开动脑筋,助小男孩一臂之力吧!

A humorous celebration of imagination and creativity that invites kids to create their own monster masterpieces with everyday materials. Perfect for art lovers of all ages!

What’s the SCARIEST, MEANEST, most TERRIBLE monster you can imagine? For one child, every proper monster means a green tongue! Pointy horns! And definitely extra sharp teeth. But what’s a kid to do when the entire family thinks their monster drawings are “cute” and not frightening at all? Maybe monsters aren’t what this child previously thought—and it might just take some thinking outside the box to reveal surprising lessons about fears and perceptions.

Using found objects like buttons, cereal, string, along with traditional paints and fun cutouts, My Monsterpiece encourages children to pour over the details and look around them for materials that can be turned into art.
