The Nantucket Sea Monster: A Fake News Story

We rated this book:


One day a newspaper on the island of Nantucket published a story of a sea monster that had been spotted by a fisherman, Bill Manville. The sea monster was supposed to be 15-20 feet above the water. A few days later, another fisherman saw it and swore his sea monster was the same that Bill saw. The story also made the newspaper, and people started to believe it. Then one day gigantic footprints were seen on the shore. Could they be the monster’s? Everyone on the island was now curious and scared and was talking about it. The story made it outside of the island, but nothing happened until one day someone caught it. It was a huge rubber balloon that two famous balloon builders decided to build and throw in the water to play a prank on the island’s people. In this way, and with the help of the newspaper, everyone outside the island got to know about Nantucket.

I really did not find this book too interesting. Except for when I was expecting to see the big sea monster and I was excited about it. But when I flipped the page, I was bummed. Maybe that’s how the people on the island felt, too.
