Average rating

4 out 5

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.


it was an amazing book full of adventure, my favorite character was both Iris and the sea monkeys, it was brilliant and funny, full of adventure and determination, i would recommend it to anyone of any age.

This book was really good by the way. This book is about a boy, a mermaid and hundreds of alive Islands were a boy called Oliver saves a Island called Cliff from a bad Island. The best Character what I think is Oliver because he saved his best and favorite Island Cliff. The thing that interest me is that the Islands could move. I Would recommend to lots of Boys and girls.

This book is filled me with hysteric laughter and curiosity. The pictures were amazingly artistic and matched the description exactly. I loved the sea monkeys because they are so cute and mischievous, and very confusing. The book makes you think that in the 90% of the ocean unexplored there could be rambling islands somewhere, just somewhere waiting to be discovered. It is a very fantasy filled story, and includes Mermaids, Walking Islands(Rambling Isles), and of course, cheeky little sea monkeys. It is not a very long book but, has around 200 pages (maybe a bit over 200.) This book could be read in 2 hours or so if you're a confident reader. For less confident readers, you could read the book in chapters. Other Philip Reeve and Sarah McCintyre are very good and I would recomend them for the reading challenge and bed time stories. It's good for children of all ages and grown-ups usually like them to. The books are full of ideas and Sea Monkeys.

This is a kind of funny story and the main character is oliver. But my favourite characters are cliff the cliff because he is tiny but smart and was named by Oliver, iris the mermaid because she is funny and can't see very well and is trying to find the beach options. Last but not least is Mr . P the talking albarrows because he is rude at the beginning of the story but nicish at the end of the story.

You should read this book if you like adventures and fantasy. If you do, you will love it. It is about mermaids, islands, travel and a fierce competition.
