Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre


Along with his friends, a grumpy old albatross, a short-sighted mermaid, and a friendly island called Cliff, Oliver sets out to rescue his missing parents. On their perilous journey the friends meet evil islands, a boy called Stacey (not a girl’s name) and more sea monkeys than you can wave some seaweed at.


This imaginative, odd and original book was so much fun to read!  A great adventurous read for both boys and girls. These eccentric characters are so easy to love, and you will learn life lessons without even realizing it.

This was another book I found in the 9-12 section, which is completely fine, however; I would recommend this book to kids around 7 years old and up. wayyy up. Go ahead adults, indulge. It was a crazy quick read with wonderful illustrations, and I enjoyed every silly minute of it!
