Hott Synopsis:

amazon Goodreads
Oliver Crisp doesn’t even seem fazed when his parents and a bunch of islands disappear. Of course, this isn’t the first bit of trouble they’ve had.

Oliver knows just what to do. He packs his bag of Useful Things and heads out to find them – his parent and the islands. But what he finds is much different than what he’s looking for. Who’d expect to find Rambling Isles, talking birds, mermaids, sarcastic weeds, and an annual party – the Night of the Seawigs.

Hott Review:

This book is so much fun! I loved every second of Oliver and the Seawigs. This is an absolute perfect book for those pre-teen boys who can’t find anything interesting to read! There’s adventure, mayhem, and plenty of growing up!
