||Dear Reader,I'm glad you picked this book- not that you're going to believe this story or anything. I mean really, a Vodianoi? A water spirit? Come on! But you may be surprised by what you see when you, well.look!Yeah, I know. There is no such thing as mythical creatures. The old myths are just those.myths. Right? They definitely don't have any place in our modern world. But having said that what other explanation can you give me for the really weird feather we found? And what about those gleaming sand dollars? What about them? I could go on but I think you get the point. For me, the world would be a pretty boring place if there was no room for a little wonderment in it now and then. So anyway, I hope you enjoy this little bit of what you call "fantasy" and the next time you spot something really bizarre or disturbing out there, well.try to be brave.Good luck,Alex, Defenders Club Member.P. S. Just a little advice.brush up on your riddle solving skills. You may need them.
