LEE — Light-Beams Publishing announces the release of Ocean Secrets by Tracy Kane and Genevieve Aichele. Ocean Secrets is the second mystery book in the Fairy Houses Series of books.

Fairy magic and the wonders of Nature come alive in this illustrated chapter book for middle grade readers. The 126 page book, which takes place in coastal New Hampshire and on the Isles of Shoals, will be this month at bookstores, gift stores and online.

Ocean Secrets features Kate and Luke, who readers first met in Forest Secrets. While swimming in the tidal pool, Kate peers through her mask at the undersea world below. She grabs Luke’s arm and points to a structure of rocks adorned with seaweed, shells, and starfish — it looks like an underwater fairy castle! Exploring the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of New Hampshire, the two friends discover the magic along these rocky shores. A secret new world of adventure awaits, where pirates, ghosts, and a feisty seal are just the beginning.

The Fairy Houses Series also includes the illustrated Fairy Houses, Fairy Houses Trilogy and three photographic compilations: Fairy Houses … Everywhere!, Fairy Houses and Beyond! and Fairy Houses … Unbelievable!
