This is a great next book if your reader likes:

  • An action-packed mystery with a well-crafted plot that keeps you guessing right up to the end.

  • Well-developed characters that gradually reveal their real personality throughout the story.

  • The themes of friendship, family, and where true happiness lies - I  will give you a clue it isn't money or power!

  • To romp through a tremendous action-packed salty sea legend! It is a fast-paced plot with plenty of action and suspense.

  • To discuss and notice new vocabulary. You can have fun with wordplay and a rich vocabulary. For example, (S)herbert Lemon and Palma Violet are the two main characters.

  • Identifying and predicting who the characters really are, what they stand for, and empathise with their situations.

  • Harry Potter as there are a few parallels:

  1. The main characters are orphans trying to piece together their past and find out who they are.

  2. A fabled monster is at the center of the action, with plenty of mysteries to solve

  3. The main characters find true friendship, one is a big thinker, and the other has the resilience and bravery to succeed against the odds.

  4. Families in the story all look different, and people find out where they belong in a strong community of people who care.

Blurb: Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, knows that returning lost things to their rightful owners is not easy – especially when the lost thing is not a thing at all, but a girl. No one knows what happened to Violet Parma's parents twelve years ago, and when she engages Herbie to help her find them, the pair discover that their disappearance might have something to do with the legendary sea monster, the Malamander. Eerie-on-Sea has always been a mysteriously chilling place, where strange stories seem to wash up. And it just got stranger...
