When the brig Amaryllis was swallowed in a hurricane, the captain and all the crew were swallowed, too. For thirty years the captain's widow, Geneva Reade, has waited, certain that her husband will send her a message from the bottom of the sea. But someone else is waiting, too, and watching her, a man called Seward. Into this haunted situation comes Jenny, the widow's granddaughter. The three of them, Gran, Jenny, and Seward, are drawn into a kind of deadly game with one another and with the sea, a game that only the sea knows how to win.… (plus d'informations)

From the moment young Egan arrives in Instep, he senses the spell cast over the villagers by the Megrimum--the mysterious something that lurks on the mist-wreathed peak of Kneeknock Rise. Everyone shudders in horror--delicious horror--whenever the Megrimum's unearthly wail floats down to the village. Before long, Egan is climbing the Rise to find a practical explanation for those wails.

A silly rhyming story about a girl named Phoebe who is determined not to wear frilly, formal clothing and pink bows. Instead, she wants to dress like her father.

For her revolt, she refuses to get out of the bathtub once her mom throws a special party in her honor (which includes a dancing bear!!!).

I couldn't help but laugh because the picture of her sitting grumpily in the tub looks exactly like MY Phoebe who doesn't like getting her hair washed.
