Is something fishy going on underneath the town's dry exterior? Find out in this silly story told with lots of pictures!
A Great Read From Beginning to End!!!
Regarding the Fountain has been a book I have loved since 2nd grade. I love how the story is told within letters, memos, postcards etc. Regarding the Fountain is a great read and if you liked this book as much as me, you'd be happy to know that this is only 1 of the many other books in the Regarding the... series. Happy Reading!!!!
