There’s a storm brewing over Eerie-on-Sea, and the fisherfolk say a monster is the cause. What is ‘Gargantis’ looking for?

You might recall our previous feature on ‘Malamander,’ where we are introduced to the the town of Eerie-on-Sea, and the nautical mysteries surrounding it. We loved it because of the inventive names, that the Nautilus Hotel is like a Gran Budapest for kids, that it was a geeky book perfect for book geeks, and the delightful and atmospheric setting. And now, there’s more!

‘Gargantis’ is the second book in the Legends of Eerie-on-Sea series by Thomas Taylor, with illustrations by Tom Booth. It’s a YA adventure for readers 8-12 years-old or grades 3 through 7, and involves a monster who may have been inadvertently awakened, and is now out to find something stolen from its lair. The book is 352 pages with illustrations, and will excite any reader who is interested in legends, fantasy & magic, and monsters.
