Sal and sally are two small fish just hanging out in the waters of the big blue sea. They soon grow bored, though, so, to amuse herself, Sally starts to blow bubbles. Fascinated by the practice, Sal begs Sally to teach him how to do the same, and the two of them then proceed to have a ball, blowing bubbles and swimming around in the sea.

Nellie the octopus soon arrives, and, upon seeing the fun that Sal and Sally are having, she asks them to teach her how to blow bubbles, too. They happily oblige, and Nellie then proceeds to blow a gigantic bubble--so big, in fact, that it accidentally traps Sal and Sally inside. While they're trying to figure out how to get out of the bubble, Nasty Nick, the Texas Long Nose Cowboy Shark, sidles up the trio. Initially, he makes his malicious intentions, but once Sal and Sally catch on to the true purpose of his visit, they implore Nellie to join them in the bubble in order to save herself from getting eaten by him. She quickly does, and, despite his best offers, Nasty Nick is unable to burst the bubble and get to his prey, so he slithers off.

Safe once again, Sal, Sally, and Nellie then figure out a way to get out of the bubble--but, once they're free, Nasty Nick makes a quick return to finish what he started...can the three friends find a way to avoid becoming a tasty snack for a sneaky, hungry shark?

Readers of all ages are sure to enjoy book 2. In it, author Jay Miller does a commendable job of highlighting the advantages of getting along and working together, outlining just how beneficial the principles of teamwork, sharing, and selflessness are when put into real practice. The collective strength that can be manifested through genuine bonding is a lesson that it's never too late to learn.

Miller also places special emphasis on the importance of changing one's ways in order to gain the trust of others. The power of redemption is a universal theme that never gets old, and, as he depicts in the decisions that Nasty Nick ultimately makes, Miller does an effective job of showing the reader just how advantageous it can be to seek to make amends for past wrongs.

Sure to become a permanent addition to personal libraries, "Sal and Sally" is an engaging tale, both enlightening and entertaining.
