The Strangeworlds Travel Agency: The Edge of the Ocean
Flick is no ordinary pre-teen girl – she’s a card-carrying member of the Strangeworlds Travel Agency, where she and her friend Jonathan find themselves visiting magical new lands and amazing worlds simply by stepping into a suitcase!
But when the fearsome Captain Nyfe summons the pair to the Break, a watery, flat world of swashbuckling pirates and mysterious mer-people, they’re horrified to discover that this particular world is falling apart – literally. Ships are vanishing, there’s a crack in the sky, and the different peoples of The Break are on the verge of an all-out war.
Can Flick, Jonathan, and their new companion Avery save the inhabitants of this world before it breaks apart completely? And how do you even get a pirate ship into a suitcase?
L. D. Lapinski’s talent for magical world-building is out in full force in this stunningly imaginative book, which takes the classic pirate adventure genre and turns it on its head. Witty, poignant, and filled with larger than life characters (no, really – Leviatha the Mer-Queen is the size of a block of flats), this much anticipated sequel to The Strangeworlds Travel Agency is an absolute must-read for fans of the first book, or 9+ readers hungry for adventure and a cast of strong-willed, independent, and relatable young heroes.
