Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast � Blog Archive � EarlyEmergingBeginningInterChapterMediateReaders

I know Nim at Sea needs its own page, but the book pages on my website should be up soon, so this will have to do for now.

Here's a review from those wonderful bloggers at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

In these further adventures of the fearless Nim, Selkie the sea lion is kidnapped and Nim eventually stows away (but not on purpose) on the cruise ship that took her, all for the goal of rescuing her beloved sea lion and bringing her adventure-writing friend, Alex, back to the island. After finally making it to New York City, she realizes she might be on an island but not one like any she’s ever experienced before.

Orr can keep writing these exciting fantasy tales as long as she’d like; I think children will keep lining up to read them. As School Library Journal wrote about the first Nim-adventure, “children will love this unshakable, strong female character and the zany things that happen to her. They’ll also enjoy the way adults seem to bungle everything.”

To read the whole review:

Thanks for your comment on my blog--I replied to the question there.

Would you be willing to tell us either (1) what you think of the film or (2) what Shakespearean experiences have influenced you or (3) both?

Thanks!

Just to make the trail more confusing still, I'm going to answer this on the journal blog - wendyorr.blogspot.com because the question seems to fit better there!
