School’s out and Bobby Parrish is spending the summer on his dad’s boat. Job number one is to deal with the seals infesting the peninsula. The money’s good – but Bobby knows deep down that he hasn’t got it in him. Eoin Colfer’s trademark humour and lightness of touch and Victor Ambrus’s classic artwork evoke a strong sense of place character and vitality. An ideal gift for lovers of the best writing and artwork the children’s market has to offer.
