Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Along the Arctic Circle lies a small island called Neversink, whose jagged cliffs and ice-gouged rocks are home to a colony of odd-looking seabirds called auks, including one Lockley J. Puffin. With their oceanfront views and plentiful supply of fish, the auks have few concerns—few, save for Lockley’s two best friends, Egbert and Ruby, a know-it-all walrus and a sharp-tongued hummingbird.

But all of this is about to change. Rozbell, the newly crowned king of the Owl Parliament, is dealing with a famine on the mainland of Tytonia—and he has long had his scheming eyes on the small colony to the north. Now Neversink’s independence hangs in the balance. An insurgence of owls will inevitably destroy life as the auks know it—unless Lockley can do something about it.

Review:

"Neversink is an island in the Arctic populated by seabirds called auks. They live a peaceful existence, ignoring the forward-thinking ideas of one auk, a puffin named Lockley, and his friends, a walrus named Egbert and a hummingbird named Ruby. But their peaceful life is shattered when Rozbell, an evil owl, gains control of the Owl Parliament, takes over Neversink, and oppresses the auks, leaving Lockley and his friends to save the day. Emrhys Cooper brings engaging and lively narration to the story, and his creative character voices — particularly the droopy, pontificating tones of walrus Egbert and the tough English accents of Rozbell's two henchmen. Ages 8 — 12. A Walden Pond hardcover. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
