“Dylan sat gazing out of his classroom window, waiting for the bell to ring. He was watching seahorses playing in the reeds of sea kelp swaying in the gentle current … and not paying any attention at all to the maths lesson that was continuing outside of his daydream. “Pssst … psst,” Dylan heard behind him.
Murdoch passed a note forward. Dylan quickly grabbed it and opened it under his desk without Mrs Pike-Teeth seeing it.
It read, Happy birthday Bubble Boy!”
Dylan McFinn is an ordinary twelve-year-old. Ordinary, that is, if you ignore the fact that he lives deep under the Pacific Ocean with his family The McFinn’s.
As he battles monsters and maelstroms on his first day as a teenager, Dylan discovers that he can be an awful lot more than he imagines and a nostalgic trip to the past was more than just a rite of passage. It was a passage to his destiny.
This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
This very imaginable middle school book, was such a delight to read.
It all starts with the elder Dylan McFinn, sitting down sharing a tale from his book of ‘The Tales of Brother McFinn’ to his village of Malotans. In the audience are young and old alike, this where the story takes off. Captain Culbert McFinn, Dylan’s father was deep into his cups with some islanders rum. When happens to have a chance encounter with a Mermaid. When it happens the second time, he knows he is seeing things. Veruna, the mermaid introduces herself and takes him to a wonderful underwater world. To the delight of the reader the author uses mythology and ties it with critical current issues for young people to understand the importance of environmental protection. There is action abound and adventure that I really enjoyed reading about. The narration flows as the characters are well developed and fleshed out. A delightful book for young and adult readers alike.
To give away further plot would be to lessen the pleasure for readers.
This is one book that I will be purchasing for my family members.
