"Sharks and Squids and Wedgies, why us?"
In Book Three of the Accidental Adventure series, Oliver and Celia Navel have finally gotten cable television and are ready to spend a school year watching their favorite shows. But on New Year's Eve, after an octopus gives Oliver a tuxedo wedgie, an ichthyologist races into their apartment and tells the twins that their mother is stranded on an island with an enormous squid and is in mortal danger. So, quite reluctantly, the twins don their wet suits and take a journey in the Pacific Ocean.
But this time the twins don't have just one mortal enemy--they have two! There's Sir Edmund, of course, and there's also a band of pirates who are following them in a cruise ship. Not to mention an erupting volcano, a shark-wrestling match, an underwater adventure, and a hostage chicken. But by the end of the story, Oliver and Celia manage to avoid capture, find the map to Atlantis, save their parents, and, well, give a squid a wedgie. We won't discuss how.
If you haven't started this series yet, now's the time to buy all three!
If Oliver and Celia Navel had any hopes this year would be less life-threatening than the last, their hopes are quickly shattered…along with their television set. When a strange scientist warns them that their mother is—yet again—in peril, it’s off to the Pacific Ocean they go. But navigating stormy seas proves easy compared to tackling a Kraken—an enormous squid—and the twins think they might have bitten off more than they can chew. In their quest for Atlantis, Oliver and Celia are in the worst trouble of their young lives; and survival comes down to one seemingly impossible task: giving a squid a wedgie.
