Description of this Electronic Book

Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in the winter. Especially not when darkness falls and the wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan, where even now some swear they have seen the unctuous Malamander creep...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...

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Taylor knows how to create atmosphere and a sense of creepy place. It's a book to be devoured, but is also born for the screen - and I can't wait to see this south-coast Grand Budapest Hotel meets The Shape of Water (but with a better plot) become a hit.
