Sina and the Eel by Leilani Watson, Jenny Cooper | WaterstonesPost a Comment. Saturday, 25 March Reading "Sina and the Eel" I found a Pasifika book to read and went to a reading corner and became engrossed in reading. Whilst I was there, I heard a little girl of about 5 - 7 years old reading in Samoan to her grandmother. When I heard the word "Sina" I looked up to see what book she was reading saw that she was reading the book that my husband and I worked on. It brought tears to my eyes as I saw her reading to her nana in Samoan and then reading the facing page in English as her grandmother corrected her when she needed support.
