What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When Tuesday McGillycuddy and her beloved dog, Baxterr, discover that Tuesday’s mother—the famous author Serendipity Smith—has gone missing, they set out on a magical adventure. In their quest to find Serendipity, they discover the mysterious and unpredictable place that stories come from. Here, Tuesday befriends the fearless Vivienne Small, learns to sail an enchanted boat, tangles with an evil pirate, and discovers the truth about her remarkable dog. Along the way, she learns what it means to be a writer and how difficult it can sometimes be to get all the way to The End.

What Kind of Book is Finding Serendipity

What Should I Know As a Parent

Families are unique and have different expectations for the books they choose to read. The following is a list of concepts included in this book that some parents may wish to seek out or avoid.

Violence: There is some violence that sensitive readers might get frightened by, including arrows and poisoned darts being shot at villains. The scene near the end with the main villain dying and coming back to life is the most gruesome part of the book. According to the pirate's tradition, they sew up dead bodies in a canvas bag, putting the last stitch through the pirate's nose to ensure they're dead (the villain, Mothwood, wakes up at this point). Mothwood gets up and his broken limbs snap back into place.

Note that this list is not exhaustive and there may be concepts in this book that are not included or have been insufficiently or incorrectly detailed here.

What Questions Should I Ask My Child

  • Tuesday learns that she’s a writer by trying it out. Sometimes we have a unique talent for something, but we can also work at it and learn certain skills. What talents does your child have or want to learn?

Who Illustrated Finding Serendipity

illustrator
Stevie Lewis

Stevie Lewis has been living on the road in a van (she built out herself!) for the past 3 years, furthering her passion for climbing, art, and the outdoors. Striving to live simply and tread lightly on the earth, she gathers inspiration from a variety of places, be it climbing in the high desert at Smith Rock State Park, hiking and foraging for wild plants in the forests of southeastern Alaska, or sharing stories with fellow travelers around a campfire. After working for several years at DreamWorks Animation Studios, she now illustrates children’s books and creates art based on her travels. Her latest illustrated work includes Prince & Knight by Daniel Haack, Lost in the Library by Josh Funk, the Finding Serendipity series by Angelica Banks, and the upcoming SUN! One in a Billion by Stacy McAnulty.
